    Response time It may suprise you to know that the target response time for the highest priority is 20 min, priority 1 is 1 hour. I dread to think how long priority 8 is (a week) to put it context ambulance response time for any 999 call is six min.
    Today I used the 101 number it took nearly three minutes to speak to a “call handler” dont you just love these improvements.

    Regarding 101 there was a webchat a few days ago by North Wales Police Live Chat with Supt. Goss

    I asked the following:

    Comment From rob
    Aside from 999 people are advised to call 101. I have done that a couple of times before and its rung out with no answer. Why does that happen?

    Alex: The 101calls are non-emergency calls into the control room and are of very high demand at times (over 430,000 per year). These are dealt with in turn and callers are encouraged to remain on the line rather than dial back where they will re-join the end of any queue. In September we answered over 94% within 40 seconds.

    Perhaps these stats should show how many event numbers were issued compared to the amount that were then assigned crime numbers?

    Hit the nail on the head here, this is where the ‘cuffing’ of the crimes comes into it.

    The web chat was a farce difficult questions were ignored or answered with bland waffle.

    The Police Commissioner, Winston Roddick will be attending WCBC Partnership Scrutiny Committee at 6pm on 20/11/13. Councillors have been invited to submit questions to him.
    I am happy to put any questions readers/contributors of this thread wish me to put to the Commissioners. I will probably be restricted to no more than three questions. Post your questions here or email them to me at arfon55@btinternet.com.
    Also feel free to attend the meeting it is open to the public.

    Think there have been some pretty good points raised on this thread, perhaps a couple of those could be used?

    “WCBC conducted a survey on the key issues for Wrexham County, and published that they are: 1. Job prospects (51.8%), 2. Affordable decent housing (39.0%), 3. Road and pavement repairs (35.9%), 4. Wage levels and the cost of living (33.1%), 5. Activities for Teenagers (32.3%) … how is the Police Commissioner building these priorities into his policing plan and measuring the positive impact of police work in favour of these priorities of the community?”.

    I have tried to link and summarise main issues to Drug Seizure figures.

    Interesting stats direct from https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/tables-for-seizures-of-drugs-in-england-and-wales-financial-year-ending-2013 for north wales specific:

    Drug seizures per million population by police force area and year, 2003 to 2012/13
    North Wales 1,830 2,567 2,394 2,858 3,525 3,744 3,600 3,213 2,571 2,282

    Number of seizures of controlled drugs by seizing authority and year 2003 to 2012/13
    North Wales 1,220 1,717 1,607 1,920 2,373 2,531 2,441 2,181 1,744 1,571

    Which is broken down to… Number of drug seizures by drug class, type and seizing authority, 2012/13 , so the entire break down for 1,571 for the 12/13 figs:

    Class A
    Cocain 172
    Crack 6
    Ecstasy 25
    Heroin 41
    LSD 1
    Methadone 2
    Morphine 1
    Other 6

    Class B
    Cannabis 1,195
    Amphets 97
    Barbiturates 5
    Other 41
    (total) 1,300

    The trends and what you read in to them depend on the start point but it does seem 2009 was a high point for seizures.

    However, much like the parking debate, is drop of 10% people being educated , the problems moving elsewhere etc as it could be seen as a sign of success as well as failure :)
