CONFIDENCE IN POLICING

Welcome to the South Yorkshire Police Confidence in Policing survey.

South Yorkshire Police (SYP) are currently working to develop a Confidence strategy to improve trust and confidence within our communities. It is vital that SYP’s approach includes consultation with the wider communities across South Yorkshire. To develop a strategy and way forward it is important for us to understand where we are now and what impacts on the public’s opinion of trust and confidence in policing. This survey will help us identify what impacts on confidence in policing and will help us identify how we can improve the service to the public of South Yorkshire.
All information that you provide is strictly confidential. No information will be published that allows individuals to be identified. The data will only be accessed by South Yorkshire Police. The survey should take no more than10 minutes to complete.
