Police Now Impact report 2022/23


“At its heart, Police Now puts the role of officers firmly in the community they seek to serve. This changes the dynamic from ‘them and us’ to ‘we’.”

We and our partner forces post Police Now officers to the most deprived and challenged communities.

Living in a poor area should not increase the likelihood of fearing, becoming a victim of, or becoming involved in crime.

Unfortunately, all of these hold true. Police Now focuses on posting officers to the most deprived communities given the strong links between deprivation, crime and fear of victimisation.

  1. The IMD is the official measure of relative deprivation for small areas (neighbourhoods) in England (higher score = higher deprivation). Seven main types of deprivation are considered in the Index of Multiple Deprivation 2015, including: income, employment, education, health, crime, access to housing and services, and living environment. These are combined to form the overall measure of multiple deprivation. The IMD data is an open-source data that can be downloaded from the Gov UK website. ↩
