Digital Crime and Performance Pack
Part of: Police ethics and accountability
HMICFRS has worked closely with key policing partners to collectively develop the Digital Crime and Performance Pack (DCPP).
The DCPP brings together already published data about police performance to improve transparency and accountability. The DCPP shows the performance of all 43 police forces in England and Wales against the priority measures outlined in the Government’s Beating Crime Plan, in easy-to-use tables and graphical formats. This initial launch covers homicide, serious violence and neighbourhood crime. The DCPP will be updated with the latest published data every quarter.

We have published dashboards for the following crime types:
Detailed information about data sources and methodology are provided in the dashboard. Further information on the data in this dashboard can be found on the police recorded crime and outcomes open data tables.

About this data
Before using the dashboards, please read the relevant data and methodology pages. This will help you to understand the data which underpins each report, and the key data caveats and limitations. Crime rates are calculated by dividing crime volumes by the population in the police force area. Crime rates and volumes should be considered alongside each other to aid understanding. For example, where volumes of crime are low, a small increase in volume would result in a large percentage change in crime rate.
When making comparisons using the public DCPP, it is important to remember that this is currently data for only three crime types, and there will be a variety of factors influencing rates.
- Beating Crime Plan (GOV.UK)
- Data sources and comparators, including most similar groups (HMICFRS)
- Recent HMICFRS assessments of police force performance (PEEL assessments)
- Reports from HMICFRS’s rolling programme of crime data integrity inspections
- Criminal justice system (CJS) delivery data dashboard – an overview of the justice system (GOV.UK)
- Police.uk – the national website for policing (data on 999 call answering times, stop and search, workforce diversity, and crime rate data at a force and local neighbourhood level)
- Office for National Statistics.
- Police recorded crime and outcomes open data tables (GOV.UK)
- Monthly hospital admissions for assault by sharp object May 2022 (NHS Digital – England only).
