In order for Stephen Bett to make choices and take decisions with the needs of Norfolk’s communities at their heart, it is vital that he has a full and accurate picture of what communities want from their policing service.
Stephen and Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Jenny McKibben spend a lot of their time in ‘listening mode’ – out and about in Norfolk, meeting with local people, groups and businesses to explore their views and experiences of crime and policing.
To support that activity and enable him to look more closely at some of the key issues being raised by communities, Stephen will, from time-to-time, run surveys on this website. Please take the time to complete them and have your say on the crime and policing issues which matter to you.
Details of the surveys currently underway can be found below. We try to keep our surveys as short as possible so they won’t take you too long to complete. We will also do our best to feed back to you on how your input is being used by your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).
There are currently no live surveys.

Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence survey. Norfolk’s PCC would like your help in improving the services provided to victims of domestic abuse, rape and sexual violence. If you are currently a victim, or have been in the past, and you sought help or advice from any agency, we would like to hear about your experience. https://archive2016.norfolk-pcc.gov.uk/police-and-crime/domestic-abuse-sexual-violence-survey
The feedback provided by victims helped inform the work plan for Norfolk PCC’s Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Coordinator, Ian Sturgess. It is also a foundation upon which the PCC’s commissioning of services to support victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence is based.
41 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected across England and Wales on the 15 November 2012. When the elected PCCs took office on the 22 November 2012 they became responsible for a combined budget of £8 billion.
PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area. Their role is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account, effectively making them answerable to the communities they serve.
