No – the force uses Leicestershire Constabulary to conduct our victim satisfaction surveys. The force has worked with Leicestershire for several years.
Surveys are conducted via a telephone interview. This methodology yields better response rates than other techniques (e.g. 45 to 55% telephone, 20 to 25% paper). Use of a telephone survey also allows the force to gather data from those individuals who would be unlikely to return a paper survey, which ultimately means that the information gained, is more reliable and valid.
The telephone number will show as being withheld.
Probability sampling techniques are used to select the sample, in order to ensure that each member of the sampling population (i.e. victims of the crime types specified earlier) has an equal chance of being selected. Care is also taken to ensure that the ‘profile’ of respondents reflects the profile of the victim group in age, gender and ethnicity.
Sample details are sent to Leicestershire Constabulary on a monthly basis in a safe and secure manner and in accordance with Data Protection guidelines.
Cheshire Constabulary applies the following exclusions either before or after the sample is selected:
