Confidence in the police rose by nearly 4%, while crime fell by 3% between April 2013 and March 2014.

The figures revealed in the latest Recorded Crime and Crime Survey for England and Wales shows that North Wales continues to demonstrate strong reductions across most categories of crime.

Just over 70% of people said they had confidence in North Wales Police, and a number of other areas linked to how the public perceive the police also improved – this includes whether the public think police locally are reliable, treat people fairly, and understand community issues.

All showed increases in the proportion of people responding positively to these questions.

There have also been positive increases in the way people believe police are dealing with their concerns and how the Force works with local councils.

Meanwhile more than 86% say  that North Wales Police treats people with respect.

“The Force has maintained its strong performance with crime falling in North Wales. North Wales remains a safe place, and recorded levels of crime are lower than the England and Wales average, and indeed the all Wales average.”

“Public confidence is the bedrock of local policing – and our neighbourhood policing teams aim to solve the problems which concern our communities. It is this close connection which is so important to us, and more importantly our residents.”

North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Winston Roddick CB QC welcomed the findings and the fact there has been an increase in confidence in North Wales Police at a time when there was also a reduction in crime.
