Keeping it Local

Complete the survey on how you believe Cleveland Police have dealt with Covid-19

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, Barry Coppinger, has commissioned Teesside University to undertake a piece of independent research to measure public perceptions of policing during Covid-19.

The project is seeking the views of the public on two key themes:

  • How communities perceive Cleveland Police’s implementation of the Coronavirus Act powers;
  • How communities would like Cleveland Police and the Commissioner’s Office to engage with them during social distancing, when usual face-to-face engagement is limited.

The research team have been gathering views via email at and undertaking telephone interviews, but have now designed an online survey to further measure public perceptions.

They would be grateful if you could complete the survey and also share with any community contacts you have so they can maximise the range of opinions gathered through the research which will be invaluable in helping them to understand how this unprecedented situation has impacted on local communities and their feelings in relation to local policing.
