Thousands of people in Burntwood and Lichfield are being given the chance to help shape local policing.

Throughout January Staffordshire Police researchers will visit almost 3,000 homes across the county to gauge the views of residents – who will be asked about their area as a place to live, local priorities, crime and anti-social behaviour and the service provided by local police – as part of the Feeling the Difference survey.

The current survey also includes questions about Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Anthony Small, Consultation Coordinator for the force, said:

“The Feeling the Difference surveys are carried out every quarter and give real insight into what needs to be done where to improve quality of life for the people of Staffordshire.

“I would encourage residents to take part in the survey should they get a knock on the door over the coming weeks. The results are used by many agencies making this an extremely valuable opportunity to influence both the police and other local service providers.”

Current figures show 81 per cent of people are satisfied with the service provided by Staffordshire Police and 85 per cent say they have confidence in the force.

Working with partner agencies to tackle anti-social behaviour in communities remains a top priority for Staffordshire Police.

Latest figures show 82 per cent of people who report anti-social behaviour are satisfied with the overall service provided by the police.
