Crime figures across the redcar and cleveland area

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner,

i understand that the police shifts on the greater eston area are being reduced from 3 to 2
i find this unbelievable when promised from on high of more police numbers
worried this is a manipulation of the figures

i need to know under foi

1) the crime figures for each of the areas across the borough

2) the numbers of staff in each area before and after the changes

3) paperwork minutes etc regarding the rational behind this cut back

4) who made the final decision and when was it made

Yours faithfully,

chez

Police & Crime Commissioner, Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner

Dear Ms English

 

Enquiry Reference:  11303
-19                                                                                     
                       

 

I write in connection with regards to your request received in this office
on 17^th September.  I note you seek the following:

1) the crime figures for each of the areas across the borough

a) Please see attached document.

2) the numbers of staff in each area before and after the changes

a) In Redcar & Cleveland there were the following number of staff:

Sept 2018

2 Inspectors

5 Sgt

15 PC’s

32 PCSO’s

 

Sept 2019

1 Inspector

3 Sgts

3 PC’s

20 PCSO’s

3) paperwork minutes etc regarding the rational behind this cut back

4) who made the final decision and when was it made

 

With regards to questions 3 and 4 the context behind these figures is that
a decision was made under the previous Chief Constable Lee Freeman in
early 2019 that all Neighbourhood Police Officers would be moved to our
24/7 Incident Response Teams to help deal with urgent demand and
vulnerability which explains the drop in PC numbers. In addition, the
Force made a decision this year that it would recruit a number of PCSO’s
to become police officers in order to increase Police Officer numbers.  A
large number of R&C PCSO’s were successful and are currently undergoing
their police training but this unfortunately meant a short term drop in
PCSO numbers leaving some teams with less staff and unequal numbers across
the teams. In order to provide a consistent service with sufficient
numbers on each team that would both ensure we had enough officers to deal
with incidents as well as a consideration around officer safety, we made
the decision to reduce the number of shifts from 3 to 2 and to move some
people across area’s so that we had a consistent number of people on each
team.

 

Please note that all statistical data supplied in relation to Freedom of
Information requests is a snapshot of data held at the time the request
was received by the Freedom of Information office and is subject to
constant change/updates.

 

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be
noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical
procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland
Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response
you receive.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in
dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent
internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College
of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be
made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working
days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be
evidenced.

 

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact
this office.

 

Yours sincerely
