MORI 2011

The findings from the local survey carried out by MORI in 2011 showed that:

  • The majority of Stockton-On-Tees residents do not see anti-social behaviour as a priority for improvement.
  • The vast majority of residents felt safe when outside in their local area (91%) and only 3% said they felt unsafe.
  • 20% of residents stated they felt unsafe after dark (27% of residents who live in areas with higher crime rates).

Tackling Crime and Disorder Audit

In 2013, a survey was undertaken with 5,488 residents (and visitors) of Stockton-On-Tees.  It was a questionnaire asking residents what they thought should be a priority for the SSP.

Extensive face to face consultation was also carried out in various locations in Stockton-On-Tees to seek the views of residents.

Interim analysis reports were periodically conducted to ensure that the consultation covered a diverse range of people from different genders, age ranges, and ethnicities as well as focusing geographically to ensure a good response rate from all of the electoral ward areas in Stockton-On-Tees.

A full analysis report has been produced and can be downloaded from www.saferstockton.com

The survey showed that the key concerns/priorities for residents were:

  • Anti-social behaviour (ASB) (the most pressing concern for residents and visitors to Stockton-On-Tees.);
  • Violence;
  • Domestic violence;
  • Drug-related offending;
  • Criminal damage; and
  • Vandalism.

Respondents felt that most ASB is youth-related.
