Bridgwater Mercury: Confidence in Avon and Somerset police on the up, says PCC Sue Mountstevens Confidence in Avon and Somerset police on the up, says PCC Sue Mountstevens

POLICE say good progress has been made on last year’s Police and Crime Plan with confidence in the force having risen to 76%.

The number of burglaries across Avon and Somerset has fallen by 1,766, and satisfaction among victims of anti-social behaviour stands at 82%.

However, reported incidents of domestic and sexual abuse have risen by 6%. Police say this is because people are becoming more confident to report to the police.

Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens said: “Over the past year the constabulary has met nearly all of the objectives I set them and, importantly, despite a number of national police issues confidence in your local police service remains high.”
