In this Annual Report, we cover how 2011/12 was a year in which recorded crime fell 5.2 percent with 21,802 fewer recorded offences than in 2010/11. The total of 394,522 recorded offences was the lowest in around two decades.

The road toll of 287 was also the lowest financial year toll since records began, and 28 deaths fewer than in the previous year.

Policing of the Rugby World cup was the largest operation of the year and delivered a largely trouble-free tournament.

The year saw the launch of Prevention First, the national operating strategy for 2011–15, and implementation of many Policing

Excellence initiatives, which are proving their worth in an operational context and reducing crime and victimisation in our communities.

The Annual Report 2012 also includes the achievements of key priority areas, the Police statement of objectives and service performance, policing statistics, as well as financial and organizational information.
