Introduction DELIVERING LOCAL POLICING

B

uilding public confidence and trust is how Tayside Police aims to improve satisfaction with the quality of service provided to its communities. This is achieved through the effective delivery of policing services which meet the needs of local communities. It is about ease of access to services, giving the public a voice in order to influence how the force responds to issues that matter to them, delivering appropriate and robust interventions, working with partners, providing feedback to the public and keeping them informed of progress and improvement.

C

orporate support forms an important role in ensuring that appropriate resources are in place to deliver an efficient and effective service to the public.

The force uses performance indicators to gather information about performance, quality of service and public perception. These are listed below. They are derived from priorities identified through the annual strategic assessment and also include issues, such as housebreaking and vandalism, identified through public feedback.

The challenging economic climate means that robust monitoring and reporting processes are instrumental in ensuring that the force is on track to deliver its objectives within the resources available.

Background

P

erformance Indicators are derived from detailed policing plans and business plans outlining what Local Policing Areas and supporting departments intend to deliver in support of the priorities set out in the three-year Tayside Policing Plan 20112014. These form the basis for this performance publication. Two community priorities: ‘Public Safety’ and ‘Public Reassurance’, underpin the policing plan . Analysis of data and context1 with respect to performance indicators, combined with the outputs from public consultation, provide an indication of the extent to which the force is succeeding in contributing to improved community outcomes.

What this will tell us about performance Tayside Police Key Performance Indicators help the force define and measure progress toward the achievement of standards of service and force objectives. Monitoring results over the longer term allows the force to see where sustained improvement occurs, or identifies challenges which require to be addressed.

Consulting, engaging and listening Public consultation and feedback runs as a thread throughout performance management and provides information that lets us know whether we are doing things right. ‘Customers’ include our staff.

FOOTNOTE: 1.Context Indicators are not measures of performance per se; rather they provide additional background information in relation to the demands placed upon the force and the environment in which it operates.

Guidance INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

performance, lying outwith the upper or lower control limits, is commented upon in the summary.

B

aselines for improvement adopt the methodology used in previous years, incorporating the most recent three years average performance as a starting point for improvement.

In addition, areas of police business not contained within the key performance indicators (such as fleet, health and safety, staff development) are reported on in dashboard style, subject to data being available, with a view to producing a balanced view of organisational activity. This promotes the diverse range of services that support operational policing.

For some KPIs a slight adjustment is applied to the three-year average target which may take account of developing trends or patterns over the last 36 months. The target may be adjusted up or down accordingly to ensure that it is both challenging and realistic in terms of achievement .

P

ublication of Performance Results. This document is published monthly on the force web-site in accordance with the statutory requirement under Section 13 of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 2003 which covers public performance reporting in relation to the publication of performance information and evidence of continuous improvement.

Improvement Targets are agreed annually through a process of consultation with territorial commanders and heads of departments. These are ratified by the Force executive and Tayside Joint Police Board.

R

esults are colour-coded against the following criteria: On or above target Below target

Results are presented as a ‘Dashboard’ for ease of viewing. Further context is provided at the beginning of the document as a summary. Behind the scenes, results over time are monitored using charts, to which upper and lower control limits are applied.

Summary of results: April 2012 - August 2012 1.

for recorded violent crime and vandalism, and detection rates for violent crime, robbery and housebreaking.

STANDARDS OF SERVICE

Three out of four customer satisfaction targets were achieved for the period April to August 2012, with particular attention drawn to the ‘updating the public’ indicator where results exceeded the 2012/13 target set at 65.0% by 5.7 percentage points finalising at 70.7%.

The detection rate for groups 1 to 4 crimes (43.4%) failed to achieve target by 3.1 percentage points and a further 186 detections would have been required in order to achieve target. The detection rate for vandalism was just 0.3 percentage point below target (21 detections).

Overall satisfaction at first contact evidenced a 1.8 percentage point improvement compared to the same period the previous year rising from 93.7% to 95.5% and exceeded the force target set at 94.0% by 1.5 percentage points.

49 robberies were recorded, exactly the same number as at the same time last year but 2 more than the interim target for August.

The proportion of respondents who were provided with the name of the person dealing with their enquiry also improved from 83.2% in 2011/12 to 84.1% in 2012/13, however fell marginally short of achieving the target set at 85.0%.

315 domestic housebreakings were recorded this year, 50 more than the 265 recorded at the same time last year.

3.

Significant improvements were evident in relation to service users receiving an update on the progress of their enquiry increasing a statistically significant 9.4 percentage points to 70.7% compared to 61.3% in 2011/12. As previously stated, this result exceeded the target set for 2012/13 of 65.0%. In addition, further analysis undertaken on this indicator highlighted that 84.4% of customers who had reported a crime were updated on progress with their enquiry with a lesser proportion, 47.9%, who had made contact for other reasons, confirming that they had received an update.

For the purpose of this report, results quoted below represent the views of the general public (Public Perception). It should be noted that these results are based upon a sample size of 420 of 1500, a response rate of 28.0%.

Satisfaction with the overall service provided by Tayside Police returned an improvement of 1.9 percentage points compared to the commensurate figure last year, rising from 82.7% to 84.6%, just below the target of 85.0%.

2.

COMMUNITY POLICING

The community policing questions are replicated in both the Service Satisfaction and Public Perception surveys in order to compare perceptions of community policing from a service user perspective (those who have had direct contact with the police – Service Satisfaction survey) and as a member of the general public, who may not have had contact with the police (Public Perception survey).

CRIME

Performance in relation to overall crime groups : • • Violent crime (Group 1) - a decrease of 18.0%

(41 crimes) • Crimes of indecency (Group 2) - a decrease of

4.6% (9 crimes) •

• Crimes of dishonesty (Group 3) - a decrease of

4.1% (166 crimes) • Malicious mischief, vandalism etc (Group 4) a reduction of 13.5% (273 crimes) (Data was sourced directly from the crime reporting system on 3 September and may differ slightly to other published results due to some reclassification of crimes and any additional ‘no crime’ status being applied in the intervening period.)

The force achieved 5 out of 9 crime-related targets

53.0% of residents thought that the current level of police patrols in their neighbourhood was ‘about right’ for their community needs. Conversely, 46.7% felt it was ‘too little’ and a minimal 0.3% believed that there was ‘too much’ patrolling. The majority of respondents, 75.7%, felt reassured when they witnessed an officer on patrol in their neighbourhood whilst 6.7% stated that it caused them concern. One in six respondents had no opinion either way. 10.7% of respondents confirmed that they were able to recognise their community officer either by name, sight or both. A further 15.3%, although unable to identify their local officer by sight or name, knew how to contact them should the need arise. 49.2% of residents stated that they would like to know the identify of the community officers who looked after their neighbourhood whilst ,interestingly, a quarter (24.9%), did not feel there was a


need for them to know their community officers. ‘Local newspapers’ were the preferred medium for respondents to be kept informed about actions being taken by officers in their communities. 55.9% of residents agreed that officers understood the issues that mattered in their neighbourhoods and 47.0% felt that officers were dealing with such matters. Overall, 62.7% of respondents had confidence in the police in their neighbourhood. Taking everything into account, 65.8% of the general public thought that community officers were doing a ‘good’ or ‘very good’ job in their area.

5.

The absence rate for police officers was 3.3% at the end of August and met the target of 4.0%. This was an improvement on the 3.8% recorded at the same time last year. At the end of August 2012 the average number of days lost per officer was 2.9 compared to 3.3 at the end of August last year. The police staff result at 5.0% was a deterioration on the 3.5% recorded at the same time last year and failed to meet the target of 4.0%. In terms of average number of days lost per member of staff, this rose from 3.2 at the end of August last year to 4.5 this year.

TELEPHONE RESPONSE

The total number of people killed or seriously injured (78) was 22 fewer than last year. From April 2011, the force adopted the government’s Road Safety Framework Targets to the year 2020.

Whilst opinions remained fairly static between 2012/13 and 2011/12 in relation to those who felt that crime levels had remained the same during the period – six out of ten respondents - a 2.7 percentage point improvement was recorded for those who felt that crime had decreased rising from 13.2% to 15.9% and similarly, a minimal 1.4 percentage point reduction in those who felt that crime had increased, falling from 24.1% to 22.7%.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION OF CRIME

Nine out of ten respondents in Tayside, 89.9%, perceived their neighbourhood to be a safe place to live. This was a reduction of 1.7 percentage points compared to the same period the previous year when 91.6% of respondents were of the same opinion.

ROAD CASUALTIES

Between April and the end of August, 7 adult fatalities were recorded, exactly the same number as last year. A further 71 people were seriously injured (93 last year), five of whom were children.

Between April and the end of August, 20,156 emergency calls were received and 89.8% of these were answered within 10 seconds. 103,921 nonemergency calls were received and 64.3% were answered within 40 seconds. The trend lines based on monthly response time results for both emergency and non-emergency calls to date this year is downward facing, more acutely in the case of nonemergency calls as illustrated by the grey dotted lines on the chart below (r2 value 0.9 in each case):

SICKNESS ABSENCE

Jan

Feb

M ar

This year, the Force Contact Centre (FCC) has experienced high levels of staff abstractions through sick leave. Staffing resilience had a negative impact on performance and, in an effort to improve overall resilience, a ‘Call Handling to Dispatch’ training migration plan has been implemented.

The main issues of concern to residents when asked unprompted were ‘drug dealing/drug abuse’, 18.2% (13.9%), closely followed by ‘speeding’, 17.6% (17.0%) and ‘housebreaking’, 10.5% (10.5%). This provides a similar representation of concerns as in the previous year with ‘drug dealing/

7


drug abuse’ and ‘speeding’ changing position and ‘housebreaking’ replacing ‘antisocial behaviour’. In terms of prevalence of crime in local neighbourhoods, almost four in ten respondents, 39.6% (47.1%) cited ‘antisocial behaviour’ as a common problem in their local area, followed by ‘vandalism/ graffiti’, 32.8% (37.4%) and ‘dangerous/careless driving’, 31.8% (32.7%). This result indicates that opinions mirrored those of the previous year where ‘antisocial behaviour’ was deemed the most common issue blighting local communities. 35.4% (36.3%) of respondents confirmed that they were concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their area and when asked to comment on the issues which caused them concern, ‘housebreaking’, 44.6% (47.5%), followed by ‘antisocial behaviour’, 38.2% (46.4%) and ‘dangerous/careless driving’, 26.8% (23.3%), were the major issues of concern. Feelings of safety walking alone in local neighbourhoods both during the day and after dark evidenced a decline in confidence in 2012/13 compared to 2011/12 whereby 93.3% (95.0%) of the public felt safe during the day and 56.8% (64.5%) felt safe after dark. A minority 1.2% of residents stated that a fear of crime prevented them from taking part in their everyday activities. This represented a reduction of 3.8 percentage points compared to the 5.0% who provided the same response in 2011/12. Service Delivery When asked to provide views on the force’s service delivery, first in terms of the importance of certain activities and then how well those activities were executed, every aspect of service delivery evidenced an improvement in performance compared to the same period the previous year. This was particularly apparent for ‘providing a visible presence’ which returned an improvement of 11.9 percentage points, rising from 42.9% in 2011/12 to 54.8% in 2012/13.

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY Inspector Paul McCord said: ‘A great deal of our recent success was as a result of concentrating on carrying out high visibility patrols to provide reassurance and crime prevention measures to our community. Pro-active policing, combined with taking effective positive action at every opportunity paid dividends. We concentrated our efforts on those in our community who threatened the wellbeing and safety of others through criminality, often as a direct result of alcohol or drug abuse. I was delighted at how well this worked; we successfully disrupted these individuals by enforcing all available legislation and, as a result, reduced the number of victims of crime in our community.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • Decrease in the percentage of residents concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their neighbourhood from 50.0% to 35.3% best result across the LPA TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY

It would appear from the customer satisfaction figures that our community recognises our efforts in areas of local policing and it was rewarding to see this positive recognition of the excellent work our offi-

Policing Dundee: Community Summaries ~ April to August 2012 reduction in Group 1 - 4 crimes is being maintained. This is a very important indicator and reductions mean significantly less victims of crime in the community. Meanwhile, our detection rate for these crimes is within a percentage point of the figure from last year, but we will do all we can to improve our performance in all aspects of identifying offenders and detecting crime. We have worked hard to stop the surge of housebreakings that took place at the start of the recording period and whilst this will remain a priority we also need to improve our detection rate for this type of crime. I am pleased that there has been an increase in all but one of the customer satisfaction measurements and officers and staff will continue to focus on this in the months ahead. The focus will remain on working together with partners to prevent and detect crime, offering support and reassurance to victims and providing the best service we can to everybody that we serve.’

Policing Angus: Community Summaries ~ April to August 2012 TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY

SECTION 1: FORFAR AND KIRRIEMUIR

Inspector Ally Robertson said ‘The most recent months have been very challenging for the officers in the Forfar section with a noticeable increase in dishonesties and crimes of violence. They have, however, met this challenge by improving the detection rates accordingly in line with recorded crime, in most areas.

Main areas of public concern: drug dealing/drug abuse, youths causing annoyance, dog fouling CRIME Performance alert! • Increase in crimes of violence from 6 to 13 (7 more victims). • Increase in crimes of dishonesty of 31.0% (71 crimes)

Continued proactive work will be focused in reducing the areas of concern and our Angus Policing style of being highly visible and robustly dealing with anti-social behaviour will have significant positive impact, given time. Improved confidence in this policing style is well placed and all officers are committed to providing the best possible service they can to our communities.’

DETECTION RATE Highlights • Despite the increase in the number of violent crimes recorded the detection rate was 92.3% with only one crime undetected. Performance Alert! • Whilst the 25.0% detection rate for housebreaking was a 3.6 percentage point improvement on the 21.4% recorded at the end of July, it was 13.5 percentage points lower than last year.

SECTION 2: MONTROSE AND BRECHIN Main areas of public concern: speeding, drug dealing/abuse/vandalism/graffiti

STANDARDS OF SERVICE Highlights • 56.3% of customers stated they had received an update following contact with the police for reasons other than reporting a crime—a 9.6 percentage point improvement. Performance alert! • 64.3% of customers expressed satisfaction relating to receiving an update following their contact to report a crime—a deterioration of 12.6 percentage points and lowest result across the LPA.

CRIME Highlights Performance alert! • No violent crimes were recorded during August and therefore the total (5 crimes) to date is exactly the same as last year. • 35.7% increase in vandalism from 115 to 156. DETECTION RATE Performance alert! • Against a similar number of housebreakings to last year, a fall in the detection rate was recorded, from 50% to 11.1%.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • 95.0% of residents thought that the crime rate in their neighbourhood had remained the same or improved over the past year compared to only 76.5% last year—best result across LPA. • Only 20.8% of respondents stated that they were concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their neighbourhood compared to 25.9% at the same time last year.

STANDARDS OF SERVICE Highlights • A significant improvement of 40.6 percentage points in the percentage of customers who received an update on the progress of their enquiry from 38.7% to 79.3% • All measures relating to updating the public and overall customer experience evidenced considerable improvements

(* Results should be viewed in conjunction with sample size. Changes in results may appear inflated due to the small number of respondents involved.)

Policing Angus: Community Summaries ~ April to August 2012 PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • 88.9% of residents thought that the crime rate had remained the same or improved over the past year compared to only 69.5% at the same time last year. • 97.4% of residents said they felt safe walking alone in their neighbourhoods during the day—best result across LPA

tinue their efforts while Supervisors are tasked with supporting the officers’ continued progress in this area. It is vitally important that the members of the Brechin/ Montrose Community have the confidence and belief that they live in safe communities, that the threat of crime in their areas is not a factor in their lives and that the Officers who serve their areas have a positive impact. The very high percentage result indicated that for the majority of people felt this was the case and that the excellent efforts of their local officers were recognised.

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY Inspector Mark McInally said: ‘Violent Crime - As most violent crime tends to occur late at night and at the weekend specific efforts were undertaken by Section officers to be high profile in the areas outside the busy licensed premises, particularly at closing times. Being proactive in these areas and engaging with the patrons leaving the licensed premises undoubtedly acted as a deterrent and prevented violent crime from occurring at those locations. Officers also carried out patrols along the various routes taken by the patrons as they made there way home with those officers on foot continuing to be proactive and continued their engagement. This activity again proved positive as no violent crime was recorded for this period.

The challenge now for the Montrose/Brechin officers is to continue their efforts to maintain the current high level of positive feeling among the majority of the people but, more specifically, to ensure that their performance continues and that the message reaches all of the members of the community.’

SECTION 3: ARBROATH Main areas of public concern: drug dealing/drug abuse, housebreaking and antisocial behaviour

Vandalism - An unfortunate increase in the number of vandalisms from the previous period. However, Section officers continue to make full enquiries into any reported vandalisms. Specific hot spot areas received attention from patrolling officers at the appropriate times while the Section Community Officers continued to take every opportunity to discuss with the youths of the Sections the issues relating to vandalism, particularly the effects that vandalism can have on the community.

CRIME Highlights • Reduction of 17.6% in groups 1 to 4 crimes (91 fewer crimes) • Reduction of 72.0% in crimes of indecency from 25 to 7 DETECTION RATE Highlights • Best detection rate across the LPA for crimes of dishonesty at 55.9%. Performance alert! • 7 out of 8 detection rates lower than at the same time last year

It is always disappointing whenever the rate in detection of crime falls. However the communities in Brechin and Montrose can be assured that all crimes committed in their areas will be fully investigated, that every appropriate investigation tool will be utilised and that officers will continue to make efforts to identify those responsible for committing the crimes.

STANDARDS OF SERVICE Highlights • Improvements over all measures of customer satisfaction • 8.7 percentage point improvement on the percentage of customers who received an update on progress after contacting the police to report a crime, from 85.7% to 94.4%.

All section officers are fully aware of the importance of ensuring that members of the public are continually updated on the progress of the enquiry relating to matters they report to the Police. The increase in the number of persons who reported that they have received an update is good news for the Section, however, all officers are being encouraged to con-

Policing Angus: Community Summaries ~ April to August 2012 PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • 92.8% of respondents rated their neighbourhood as a safe place in which to live compared to 79.3% last year. • 25.9% of residents said they were concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their neighbourhood, an improvement of 32.7 percentage points on the result at the same time last year (58.6%).

(51crimes) - best reduction across the LPA • Reduction of 28.0% in crimes of dishonesty

(23 crimes) - best reduction across the LPA. • Reduction of 28.9% in vandalism from 90 to 64 - best percentage reduction across the LPA. DETECTION RATE Performance alert! • Deterioration in the detection rate for Groups 1 to 4 from 35.9 to 24.1% - lowest detection rate across LPA. • Deterioration in the detection rate for vandalism from 36.7% to 18.8% - lowest detection rate across LPA.

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY Inspector Adrian Robertson said: ‘The local police commitment to preventing crime, offering advice to victims of crime, conducting high visibility patrols and targeting known offenders continued to reap rewards. The reduction of 17.6% in group 1-4 crimes was testimony to this continued effort. I would hope that the local community take heart from this trend, as it is evidence that Arbroath and the surrounding area is becoming a safer place to live, visit and work. I note from the latest public perception figures, that there has been a increase in the number of people who state they feel safe in their neighbourhood, and a reduction (of 32.7%) in the number of people who were concerned at becoming a victim of crime. I am glad that local people feel positive about their community, and this reflects the downward trend in recorded crime figures.

STANDARDS OF SERVICE Highlights • Best results across LPA for measures relating to updating the public and overall customer experience of the service provided to them by the police. • An improvement of 7.6 percentage points in the percentage of customers who received an update on the progress of their enquiry from 81.3% to 88.9%. PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • 73.7% of respondents stated that they felt safe walking alone in their neighbourhood after dark—best result across LPA. • 16.7% of residents said they were concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their neighbourhood, an improvement of 13.6 percentage points on the result at the same time last year (30.3%).

Customer satisfaction results are important to local officers, and there has been recent emphasis on ensuring that people who report crime are updated regarding enquiries being made. It was pleasing to see that there was an increase in the number of respondents (94.4%) who stated they had received an update after contacting police to report crime. There is still room for improvement here, as we strive towards achieving 100% compliance in this area. It is evident, however, that we also require to focus more on updating people who report matters other than crime to us, as only 41.7% of respondents in these circumstances received an update from the police.’

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY Inspector Fiona Jarrett said ‘I was pleased to see that, overall, crimes in Carnoustie and Monifieth had reduced by about 28%. This was due to the pro-active and high profile style of policing in the area. This improvement was also reflected in the public perception figures which revealed that about 74% of residents felt safe walking alone in their neighbourhood after dark - the best result in the Angus area. However, the section does need to improve on detection rates for the crimes committed and all crimes will be reviewed to establish that all avenues of enquiry have been completed.’

SECTION 4: CARNOUSTIE Main areas of public concern: speeding, antisocial behaviour, dangerous driving CRIME Highlights • Reduction of 27.7% in Groups 1 to 4

22


Policing Angus: Community Summaries ~ April to August 2012 SAFER COMMUNITIES August update Sergeant Fergus Storrier said: During August initiatives carried out included: • Personal safety inputs were delivered to staff at

the surgical unit at Stracathro Hospital by the Crime Prevention Officer. • The Community Officer for Birkhill arranged sum-

mer youth activity with the support of Piperdam Golf Club and also arranged a football project in Newtyle for young people which was run by Dundee Football Club through their community team. Additional work is being carried out to support the development of a youth club in Newtyle. • The Community Officer in Kirriemuir arranged a

‘Not so secret Policeman’s Ball’ to coincide with the town’s music festival which previously caused significant youth issues in the town. Around 60 young people attended this event which dramatically reduced the number of youth problems experienced in the past. • The Road Safety officer along with partners from

Tayside Fire and Rescue, Community Officers, local driving instructors and the Tayside Safety Camera Partnership carried out Driving Ambition inputs to S6 pupils at Arboath High School . • The Road Safety Officer also carried out Road

Safety Awareness Days in Monifieth and Brechin. • The local Community Officer in Monifieth continued

with a Friday night drop-in scheme for young people. The project ran over the summer months and during this time no youth related calls were received. • The Community Officer in Monifieth worked in part-

nership with Trading Standards to run a ‘Think Jessica’ Postal Scams event at Tesco in Monifieth providing information and advice relating to worldwide criminal scam mail letters.

Caution should be exercised when interpreting the results at sectional level due to the very small sub-sample sizes. First Contact

- A statistically significant improvement in satisfaction with service at first contact from 91.0% to 98.6%. This result well exceeds the force target set at 94.0%. - A minimal increase in identifying the person dealing with the enquiry from 83.8% to 84.1%. Again, this result exceeds the target set at 85.0%. Updating the Public

- A statistically significant 15.2 percentage point improvement in updating the public from 59.8% to 75.0%, the highest result across the force. This result again well exceeds the force target set at 65.0%. When analysed by reason for contact - 88.2% of those who reported a crime were updated compared to 79.3% the previous year. A further improvement was also evident in relation to those whose contact was for reasons other than to report a crime whereby 50.0% received an update compared to 36.7% in 2011. Customer Experience

- A statistically significant improvement in overall customer experience from 81.7% to 90.3%, the highest result across the force.

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY

Main areas of public concern: drug dealing/drug abuse, youths causing annoyance and speeding

Inspector Iain Ward said: ‘Following on from last month’s scorecard, a review was undertaken of all vandalisms and associated crimes in order to explore every opportunity of increasing our detection rate. I am pleased to see that this work paid dividends with the number of reported crimes remaining steady and the detection rates improving.

CRIME Performance alert! • Increase of 76.5% in Groups 1 to 4 from 81 to 143. • Increase of 81.5% in crimes of dishonesty from 54 to 98. • 22 housebreakings recorded this year compared to 1 last year, none detected.

The Kinross area in particular was targeted by cross border thieves over the period, which was reflected in the increased number of crimes. Some very good partnership working with Fife Constabulary, by officers based at Kinross, identified similarities in areas of Fife bordering ours. Both worked closely over the period with suspects being identified for a number of thefts in Kinross. These enquiries are ongoing with a realistic chance of detections and, therefore, an improvement in the detection rate. I am pleased to see the significant reduction in reported violent crime.

DETECTION RATE Performance alert! • 17.7 percentage point drop in detection rate for vandalism from 41.7% to 24.0% over similar number of crimes recorded. STANDARDS OF SERVICE Highlights • 82.4% of respondents received an update on the progress of their enquiry—best result across LPA. • 88.9% result for overall satisfaction—best across LPA.

Whilst our public perception results remained high, it was interesting to note that these dipped in virtually every area across the LPA. The LPA housebreaking strategy and the positive messages being sent out to our communities regarding this work saw housebreaking falling off the ‘top spot’ of most concern to our communities. We are not being complacent, and are listening very strongly to our communities. Again speeding and anti social driving jumped to the top of the list of concerns. This may well be as a result of our increased focus on this matter with Operation Tupelo, a sectional action plan to directly target known hot spots. There was a significant amount of press coverage and interaction with our communities at the planning stage of this operation which is now well under way. A key aspect of the operation was to fully engage with a diverse range of people who visit, live and work in the area to identify specific areas of concern and to feed back results to them at the conclusion of the operation.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION Highlights • Only 13.6% of respondents stated that they were concerned at becoming a victim of crime in their neighbourhood—best result across LPA.

TARGETED COMMUNITY ACTIVITY Inspector Maggie Pettigrew said ‘North and West Perthshire continues to be a low crime area but percentage crime increases can appear dramatic when we are dealing with small numbers of crimes. One area of concern from the figures was the increase in Domestic Housebreakings when compared with last year from 1 to 22. This increase is due to a series of break-ins to caravans in the Pitlochry and Dunkeld area. I am pleased to report that the culprit has been arrested and a report has been submitted to the Procurator Fis-

TAYSIDE ROAD SAFETY have an interest in road safety and casualty reduction to meet, share and discuss road safety topics of mutual interest.

TAYSIDE ROAD SAFETY UPDATE Tayside Road Safety Co-ordinator, Marian Scott, said:

Forum members are encouraged to link specific topics to constituent Community Planning Partnerships Single Outcome Agreements, where possible, with particular emphasis on the road safety element of the aforementioned plans or agreements.

‘Road Safety Officers continued to deliver a full programme of Road Safety Education to Tayside communities. General Road Safety awareness days took place in May and August covering Monifieth, Brechin, Blaigowrie and Perth. Road safety Officers invited Tayside Safety Camera Partnership to attend alongside to extend the range of information available and attract a wider audience.

The Forum will consider the ongoing development of pertinent local and regional initiatives and campaigns to be considered for best practice and potential suitability for consideration of use across neighbouring local authority areas.’

The events were made as interactive as possible and offered members of the public appropriate advice, information and examples of how they could make informed decisions about being safer road users in everyday life.

July saw Road Safety Officers invited by NHS Tayside to attend a first year celebration of the dedicated support network for parents aged under 21 and having their first child. The event, which was attended by Nicola Sturgeon MSP was held at the Marriot Hall. Road Safety Officers distributed information in respect of in-car safety to around 60 new parents.

Road Safety Officers joined with Roads Policing Unit (RPU) colleagues to deliver in-car safety advice at five ‘Operation Bandit’ events at which 345 child car seats were checked.

The annual week long ’Driving Ambition’ initiative took place in Perth & Kinross during June. Roseanna Cunningham MSP attended the first event at Kinross High School.

The majority of child seats seen did have some faults, which were rectified, and appropriate advice or tuition given.

Organised by the Road Safety Officer, this event encompassed 1,300 S5/6 pupils, covered all areas of driving relevant to those thinking about learning to drive , including choosing a driving instructor, buying a car, car maintenance and road safety.

There was a noticeable increase in the number of children travelling in the front passenger seat position. In cases where children were being transported this way, appropriate advice was given in relation to active air bag and appropriate child restraints.

However, for those not yet considering learning to drive there was information about sustainable transport, safety as a pedestrian and safe passenger behaviour.

Joint working with Roads Policing Unit officers on ‘Operation Bandit’ events is very worthwhile as it allows a more informed picture to be built of what is actually happening on our roads when children are travelling in vehicles.

The event required significant support from other agencies, including Perth and Kinross Council’s Roads and Transport and Youth Services departments, Tayside Safety Camera Partnership, Tayside Fire and Rescue, Perth & District Motorschools Association; AVIVA Insurance, Sidewalk and the Institute of Advanced Motorists.

In June the bi-annual Tayside Road Safety Forum took place. This was chaired by the Road Safety Coordinator and involved partners from the constituent Local authorities, Tayside Safety Camera partnership, Tayside Fire and Rescue, NHS Tayside and the Tayside & Central Scotland Transport Partnership (TACTRAN).

‘Safe Taysiders’, the annual local initiative at which Road Safety Officers participate took place in all three Local Policing Areas and involved P6 and P7 pupils.’

The remit of the group is as follows: ‘The Tayside Road Safety Forum is designed to offer the opportunity to all parties in Tayside who

orporate support forms an important role in ensuring that appropriate resources are in place to deliver an efficient and effective service to the public. The challenging economic climate means that robust monitoring and reporting processes are instrumental in ensuring that the force is on track to deliver its objectives within available resources .

At the same time, the Scottish Government has set stretching environmental and energy reduction targets for Scotland. As a major employer in Tayside, Tayside Police is committed to demonstrating its contribution to this aim.

RANDOM DRUG TESTING A programme of testing of both police officers and police staff is carried out. This supports the prevention and management of substance misuse within Tayside Police in order to create and maintain healthy staff and enhance public trust in services delivered by the Force. This programme does not prevent staff reporting concerns about suspected illegal activity by colleagues, which is acted upon.
