Drivers of public confidence – insights from Your Police Survey

The ‘Your Police’ survey is a Police Scotland survey first launched in 2019 to listen and understand the views of Scotland’s diverse communities. It is refreshed and runs continuously each year on the Citizen Space platform.

Accessible formats in easy read and British Sign Language (BSL) are also available. It is widely distributed among partners at local and national levels. It is an open and continuous survey so that anyone can take part and give their views on their police service at any time.

The survey is one of the ways the service engages with local communities to listen to feedback about their needs, confidence and perceptions of their police service. Data and insights are used to support local police planning, service development and scrutiny.

Confidence levels from April 2020-March 2022 (when don’t know and not answered responses are removed) - Over this period the average level of public confidence was 61%.
