Annual Report

The Commissioner produces an Annual Report each year to inform the public and our partners on the progress that has been made against his Police and Crime Plan and Fire and Rescue Plan.

This report gives both the public and the body which oversees his work, the Police, Fire and Crime Panel, the opportunity to review his activities and work and provide their feedback.

These reports cover each financial year. All feedback on the report is welcomed. Please use our Contact page to give us your views.


The 2022/23 Annual Report provides an overview of the Commissioner’s activities and key successes over the 2022/23 financial year, providing a snapshot of the work being undertaken to deliver on the priorities set out in his Police and Fire plans.

It covers key achievements including 120 additional Police Officers in 2022, a new local policing model which aligns with a 5% increase in public confidence and a successful pilot undertaken by Staffordshire Fire & Rescue who responded to 203 vulnerable people who had fallen in their homes.

It details how the Commissioner has secured more than £3m of extra funding to improve safety for women and girls, address anti-social behaviour, improve home and business security and support local domestic abuse and sexual violence services.

It explains that in Staffordshire, an enhanced focus on culture, vetting and professional standards has made it easier for staff to report concerns and ensure that our Police and Fire & Rescue Service are safe, supportive organisations to work in.
