Matthew Barber, APCC Lead for Performance

Mathew Barber, APCC Lead for Performance and PCC for Thames Valley, provides an update on his national portfolio.

"The Performance Portfolio allows us to get a real grip of how forces are performing across the country making sure we're all speaking with one version of the truth when we're comparing statistics between forces and really driving performance to benefit the public and drive down crime.

"One of the great successes we've had is driving the work of the Crime Performance Board, which has been bringing together all of our data from the Inspectorate, from police forces and the Home Office to make sure we have that one single version of the truth, to make we can focus on performance and drive down crime to benefit the public."
