Government inspectors have found that Cambridgeshire police has a strong focus on the needs of victims and is good at reducing crime.

Inspectors look at how efficient and effective each force is in cutting crime and delivering its services during the PEEL report.

Sir Graham Bright, Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire welcomed the report.

He said: “I am particularly pleased that HMIC has recognised the work that all those in the constabulary do in support of both victims of crime and the vulnerable, whilst at the same time maintaining a focus on those individuals who cause most harm to society.”

The force’s effectiveness was highlighted as being good at reducing crime, preventing offending and reducing anti-social behaviour, with neighbourhood policing teams having a strong identity and relationships with communities.

Strong partnership working was also highlighted as working well to tackle anti-social behaviour, deal with offenders and support victims.

HMIC Inspectors were impressed that the force is meeting funding challenges and is planning sensibly for the future, while providing an effective service to the public.

Sir Graham has thanked officers.
