Reasons For Arrests across Avon and Somerset

Question

1. Please point me to or send me the details of reasons for arrests over the last few years in S & A police area. I can't see anything on your website but in Lambeth the police would provide monthly breakdowns of number and reasons for arrests. I am especially interested in the numbers for shoplifting, burglary and drug arrests.

2. Also is there a Community police Consultative group or regular public interface with the police in S & A?

Answer

2. PACT meetings are our most common public interface meetings with the public, but we also attend Parish and Town Council meetings from time to time, and many of our beat managers and PCSO’s hold regular ‘surgeries’ on their respective beats. The PCC also holds regular public forums across the force area which are jointly attended by the Somerset Area Commander and the other Area Commanders on their Areas. 

 

Below is a link to PACT meeting information online:
