We deal with a wide range of enquiries. Some are straightforward and can be resolved immediately over the telephone or at a police enquiry office, for example. Others need further investigation or the benefit of specialist expertise before they can be resolved.

Restorative Justice brings victims, offenders and communities together to decide on a response to low level crime and anti-social behaviour in the community. It is about finding positive solutions and encouraging offenders to face up to their actions, making them understand what they've done wrong and give them an opportunity to do something to repair the harm.

Proceeds of Crime
The Proceeds of Crime Act allows the force to confiscate or start civil recovery procedures for the proceeds of crime. This means that we're tackling criminals by taking away the results of their criminality.

Police forces in England & Wales are required by the Home Office to undertake satisfaction surveys to assess the quality of service provided to victims of crime and service users. There are a number of national performance indicators that contribute to the new national performance framework called APACS (Assessments of Policing and Community Safety).
