 Police in Norfolk are ‘outstanding’ at reducing crime andanti-social behaviour according to a report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorateof Constabulary (HMIC). 

The constabulary has been rated as ‘good’ following a recent inspection which looked at the overall effectiveness of the force; focusing on the way it prevents and investigates crime and anti-socialbehaviour, tackles serious and organised crime, managers offenders andprotecting the vulnerable.

 Inspectors judged the force to be ‘outstanding’ in preventingcrime and anti-social behaviour and Norfolk was one of only three forcesnationally to achieve this top grade.

 The report, published today (Thursday 18 February),also highlighted  ‘impressive’ partnership working with localauthorities including  councils and schools to help address community concerns andeducate young people on how to stay safe.

 Deputy Chief Constable Charlie Hall said “Reducing crime and keeping people safe is what policing is all about. Key to achieving this is preventing crime, reducing anti-social behaviour,supporting vulnerable  victims and managing offenders; it’s vital we get this right.

 “To have our work praised in this, the first graded assessment of the Constabulary’s overall effectiveness, is very pleasing and a credit to the dedication of our officers and staff who work tirelessly to keep the people of Norfolk safe.”

 It is the second ‘good’ rating the force has received from the HMIC within a week; last Thursday (11 February) a report published on treatment of the public stated Norfolk was ‘fair and ethical’.

 Following the review into overall effectiveness, which included focus groups and interviews with officers and staff and partners, inspection of case files and data, the report concluded:

Norfolk Constabulary is outstanding at preventing crime, anti-social behaviour and keeping people safe.

It works extremely well with partner organisations to keep people safe and tackle anti-social behaviour at a strategic constabulary-wide level and in local neighbourhoods.

· It has directed significant resources topreventative work.

· It is actively involved in an impressive range ofjoint working arrangements.

· It is focused on identifying and supportingvulnerable victims and has invested heavily in this area.

· It investigates crimes effectively.

· It has a good understanding of serious and organisedcrime and is working well to tackle this.
