Public perceptions survey of policing in Warwickshire during the pandemic
The Covid pandemic was a testing time for policing as well as for all of our communities.
It was important that throughout this period of rapidly-changing laws and regulations, we tried to understand how our approach was being perceived by the public.
In April 2020, we commissioned research with Warwickshire residents to gain insight into public perceptions and experiences of policing of the pandemic. A follow-up phone study was conducted in early 2021, supported by an online survey which was open to anyone who lived in, worked in, visited and/or travelled through the Warwickshire force area.
Between September and November 2021, a survey was issued to the public to understand their views of how they interact with the police. The objective was to help us to learn, adapt and improve our services accordingly.
