What You Said
Giving Feedback is an integral part of the Authority's Contact Cycle and we aim to ensure that communities feel their views are taken into account in a way that meets their expectations.
We endeavour to provide feedback to those people directly involved in our engagement processes. to complement this, you can read the results of some our key engagement projects below:-
During 2011 the Authority consulted with 1328 members of the public about their priorities for policing and about policing services. The consultation took place in towns and neighbourhoods at which Members, Authority staff, police officers and PCSOs carried out face to face surveys with the public.
The Policing Priorities consultation results were considered by the Authority when determining the Chief Constable's Objectives for 2012.
Before determining the police budget for 2012/13, The Authority considered the results of consultation undertaken with staff, public and representatives of the business community.
Confidence & Satisfaction
The British Crime Survey (BCS) is an important source of information about levels of crime and public attitudes to crime as well as other criminal justice issues. The results play an important role in informing Government policy.
Fear of Crime
The Fear of Crime report summarises the findings and recommendations from face to face consultation with residents of Cheshire, Halton and Warrington. Twenty one focus groups were conducted by Cheshire Police Authority to understand what the Authority and the Constabulary need to DO differently in order to increase customer satisfaction in policing services and to reduce the fear of crime. Focus Groups were held with 306 Cheshire residents representing young people, older people, rural and urban communities, black and minority ethnic communities, people with a disability and women.
The Authority Business Crime Survey was sent to 832 businesses in the policing area to find out how confident they felt in the police service they recieved.

Stamping Out Homophobic Bullying
Following a research project undertaken by Lesbian and Gay Youth Manchester Services to investigate the degree and prevalence of violence in the daily lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Young People across the North West, The School Street Home Report(SSH!) looked at the experiences of violence against over 100 young people at school, at home and in the street. A conference was organised to inform practitioners about the outcomes of the research, how to become a hate crime reporting centre and to launch quality standards for LGBT Student access.
