The New Statesmen

Deputy Director Adam Hawksbee made the case for more neighbourhood policing in The New Statesman.  He writes:

Over the last five years the number of people who say the crime rate in their local area is either the same or higher has stayed at around 80 per cent; in 2019, around three-quarters of the public felt the police were doing a “good job”, and today that number is around half.”
