How does the fear of crime affect you and your local community?

The North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner is working with the University of York to investigate just that, and your opinion could help them to better understand how crime affects our community.

Researcher Sam Hutchinson, Community Mapping Project Officer at the OPFCC, is running the survey as part of his undergraduate dissertation at the University of York.

This survey builds on Sam's community mapping work and the results from the National Rural Crime Network's survey of 2018. Both suggest that rural communities are more fearful of crime, despite being statistically safer.

This survey will help the Commissioner and the police understand which factors could be contributing to the fear of crime in both rural and urban communities, potentially improving how the police across the UK interact with local communities.
