The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) has to publish the most recent report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMICFRS.
The report examines the effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy of the Cleveland Police. This is also known as the PEEL report.
The OPCC must also publish a summary assessment of the performance of the police force, through national measures.
Police and Crime Commissioner Steve Turner monitors how crime is changing across the force. That’s so he can understand the needs of communities better.
As a result, this understanding influences how the PCC sets priorities for the police. He does this through his Police and Crime Plan. In addition, it influences how he makes decisions, works with others and commissions services.
Cleveland OPCC is committed to ensuring that performance data about Cleveland Police is available and transparent. You can find useful links for accessing that data on this page.
Performance against local policing priorities:
The PCC publishes a Police and Crime Plan, which sets out the strategic direction for policing and community safety in Cleveland. It is expected that the Chief Constable will factor the PCC’s objectives into the Force’s plans and strategies.
Every quarter, the OPCC prepares a report – based on data provided by Cleveland Police – which sets out how the force are delivering against the objectives (and measures) in the PCC’s Plan. These are presented to Cleveland Police and Crime Panel.
National Crime and Policing Data:
The Government introduced National Priorities for Policing in 2021. The priorities are specified by the Government in the National Crime and Policing Measures.
The aim of the national measures is to complement existing local priorities set out in the Cleveland Police and Crime Plan 2021-2024.
The key national policing priorities are the following:
- Reduce murder and other homicide;
- Reduce serious violence;
- Disrupt drugs supply and county lines;
- Reduce neighbourhood crime;
- Improve victim satisfaction with a focus on victims of domestic abuse;
- Tackle cyber crime
The Commissioner is required to provide a statement on the contribution of Cleveland Police in achieving improvements against these national priorities. See most recent statements below:
