Annual Report 2017/2018

Welcome to my 2017-18 Annual Report, setting out the key activities and achievements of the year in my work as your Police and Crime Commissioner and that of my office, West Yorkshire Police, and our partners.

We are committed in our work to keep West Yorkshire safe and feeling safe, and the past 12 months have been spent making sure we are tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, safeguarding vulnerable people, making sure criminal justice works, and providing support for victims and witnesses in West Yorkshire. In particular, this report highlights areas of positive work in our response to domestic abuse, safeguarding vulnerable members of the community, applying new technologies, and reinforcing neighbourhood policing.

We have also been working to meet my pledges to you, and with your support, I have been able to increase the number of police officers on the frontline, protect the number of Police and Community Support Officers, and strengthen neighbourhood policing with a greater focus on local problem solving.

I hope you find this Annual Report useful and informative but, as ever, if you require any further information or would like to raise a policing or community safety issue directly, please do not hesitate to contact me here at the OPCC. Best wishes,


Mark Burns-Williamson OBE
Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire
