We would welcome any views you have
This approach is only suitable if done completely independent of the Police and since this does not occur it can in no way be an accurate measure. Even if an independent body were to carry out any survey on public confidence, this is generally by online form and is usually completed by a disproportionate number of serving Police Officers, skewing any results. Also how do you measure public confidence in relation to the areas of crime which are not a large factor in the everyday thinking of Public but are a huge factor for the police such as Terrorism, Murder, Fraud, Cybercrime, Kidnap & Extortion. These surveys are also massively skewed by Public belief of Police responsibilities, even when these are carried out by local authorities such as dog fouling and certain parking offences.
