Police and Crime Needs Assessment

Evidence-based decision making is at the heart of the Commissioner’s approach.  As such, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner works with key partners, including the Constabulary to develop an Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Needs Assessment (PCNA) in October each year to inform her strategic decision making and development of the Police and Crime Plan.

The Needs Assessment aims to identify and assess the issues that are likely to impact upon local crime and community safety services over the coming years via a horizon scanning approach.  The main objectives of the assessment are to:-

  • Identify significant issues that are likely to have an impact upon delivery of the Police and Crime Plan and wider crime and community safety environment
  • Provide a profile of need for community safety services amongst victims and those who are not victims but are at risk of harm because of their characteristics or circumstances
  • Review current gaps in services in respect of these findings, and present shared multi-agency recommendations for improvement
  • Consider the impact and extent of victimisation across the priority and commissioned service areas
