The Commissioner has a statutory duty to publish an Annual Report every year detailing her progress against her Police and Crime Plan.
This report gives both the public and the body which oversees her work, the Police and Crime Panel, the opportunity to review her activities and work and provide their feedback.
These reports cover each financial year. All feedback on the report is welcomed. Please use our Contact page to give us your views.
On 5th September 2019, Jane released her seventh annual report after it was formally endorsed by the Police and Crime Panel.
The 47-page document details the extensive work carried out by the Commissioner over the last financial year, between 1st April 2018, and 31st March 2019, and gives both the Panel and you the chance to review and appraise her progress in delivering her police and crime priorities.
Following previous feedback from the Police and Crime Panel, this year’s report contains a section which describes the challenges and realities of policing over the last year, which came on the back of nine years’ of government cuts and has left Merseyside Police’s workforce being reduced by nearly a quarter.
It also includes an infographic on the demands placed on the force in a single day and the significant increases that have already been experienced since 2017, when a similar graphic was produced for Jane’s Police and Crime Plan.
The report, which has been produced as an interactive PDF, includes infographics, diagrams and case studies illustrating the Commissioner’s work engaging with the communities of Merseyside, holding the Chief Constable and his team to account, and delivering the Victim Care Merseyside service, which provides support to help vulnerable victims of crime to cope and recover.
