Are Devon and Cornwall Police Performing?

After over 12 months as Chief Constable for Devon and Cornwall Constabulary, Stephen Otter said recently:

“I am very pleased by the performance of this Force since my arrival 12 months ago. The results are a testament to the hard work and dedication shown by all staff at the Constabulary.”

But have you ever wanted to know how Devon and Cornwall Constabulary compare with other police forces throughout Wales and England, according to the Home Office?

If you do, then click on Performance and Measurement to be directed to the Home Office site. This is the police League Table for Wales and England for the year 2006 to 2007 and was published in October 2007.
The Government's Police Performance Assessments rate the 43 forces in England and Wales in seven categories: tackling crime, resources and efficiency, serious crime and public protection, protecting vulnerable people, satisfaction and fairness, implementation of neighbourhood policing and local priorities.

Devon and Cornwall Constabulary were rated by the Home Office with between ‘Good to Fair’ (with mainly ‘Fair’s) on delivery and ‘Stable’ in terms of direction.

In short, it is a pretty average force.
