Annual Engagement Report

Upon re-election, PCC Martyn Underhill pledged to publish an annual engagement report outlining engagement activities carried out by the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner (OPCC).

In 2018/19, we engaged with over 5,000 people face-to-face at summer events, speaking engagements, conferences, community meetings, PCC surgeries and online via the Precept survey.

We reached over four million people via our social media channels. We delivered two formal public consultations this year: the Devon & Cornwall and Dorset Police Merger Proposal and the Precept consultation, which received a combined figure of 9,000 responses from local people.
