The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Humberside, Jonathan Evison, has welcomed a Government funding announcement to tackle violent crime in our region.
The Home Office announced today that the Humberside policing area will join 19 other regions by establishing a Violence Reduction Unit to identify the causes of violent crime and lead the local response to reduce violence through targeted interventions and education.
Police Officers, PCSOs and Special Constables have been out across the Humberside Force area this Easter bank holiday weekend, to ensure everyone remained safe and the Government’s guidance to protect the NHS and save lives was being followed in our communities.
Humberside Police officers have reported another significant shift in morale, according to the Police Federation Annual National Pay and Morale survey 2019.
Not only are Humberside Police officers reporting the most improved morale of any force nationally, as can be seen from the national bar chart for each force, Humberside are also 1st in several key categories out of every force in the country.
