What matters to you? Results from our 2016 public consultation

The results are in from our latest public consultation which asked you to tell us what policing priorities you want BTP to focus on.

1,959 people responded to the survey, which ran online and as a Freepost questionnaire handed out at stations and on trains between November 2016 and January 2017.

The top three priorities identified by members of the public are:

  • Tackling antisocial behaviour (chosen by 40.1% of respondents)
  • Being more visible in the evening and late at night (chosen by 39.8% of respondents)
  • Uniformed officers being more visible in general (chosen by 39.4% of respondents)

Respondents in our 2014 and 2015 public consultations also identified these three issues as key priorities for us.

Around 30% of those who answered the survey considered terrorism as a policing priority with 20% of respondents choosing violent crime to make up the top five priorities.

Just over half (55.4%) of respondents who were aware of BTP said we are doing an excellent or good job and two thirds of those surveyed rated their personal security at their local stations as very good or fairly good.
