Detail

Home Office Statistical Bulletin 19/10  presents findings from additional analyses on public perceptions of policing, people’s engagement with the police and their perceptions of the likelihood of becoming a victim of crime, based on the 2009/10 BCS.

Since 2001/02 the BCS has run continuously with interviewing being carried out throughout the year. Adults aged 16 and over are asked about their experiences of crime-related incidents in the 12 months prior to interview.

BCS respondents are also asked about their attitudes towards different crime-related issues such as the police, criminal justice system, perceptions of crime and anti-social behaviour.
