The latest force survey, involving hundreds of people, found that 59 per cent were “very satisfied” while 23 per cent were “fairly satisfied”.

But four per cent said they were “very dissatisfied” with the response and four per cent were “fairly dissatisfied”.

Another 82 per cent were “very satisfied” with the treatment they received from the officers who attended the incident they reported, with 16 per cent “fairly satisfied” and one per cent “fairly dissatisfied”.

The survey found that 62 per cent felt they were “kept adequately informed” about any progress made while 38 per cent felt they were not.
