What Our Priorities Are and How We Are Doing

Annual Policing Plans

Here you will find a link to the Police & Crime Commissioners Police & Crime Plans.

Annual Reports

There are two elements to an Annual Report. Both came from the Police Act 1996. The Chief Constable had a requirement to submit to the Authority a general report on the policing of the force as soon after the end of the financial year as possible and arrange for it to be published. The Police Authority had a requirement to publish an annual report which outlines performance in the previous year and how far the intentions of the three year strategy and local policing plan were met. Cheshire, like many other forces and authorities, has produced a joint publication to satisfy both these requirements.

The Police and Justice Act 2006 repealed section 9 of the Police Act 1996 Sec 9 to produce an annual report in this way.

Each of the Local Policing Units is led by a Chief Inspector. This neighbourhood-based style of policing is about putting the local back into local policing.
