Overall risk of crime and ASB is falling but
Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Needs Assessment
There is substantial unmet need and
significant levels of unreported crime
• Ranging from low level incidents to
most serious crimes and threats
– ASB, serious sexual offences, CSE,
domestic abuse, hate crime, FGM,
Human Trafficking, terrorism

– Young people, BME communities,
deprived neighbourhoods

improve intelligence, confidence and pro-activity
