This chapter, written by Edgar Jardine, is primarily an assessment of the performance of the PSNI from 2001-02 to 2001-12, including national comparisons. Beginning with a reference to the Independent Commission recommendations in regard to planning and setting objectives for policing, it then sets out the trends across a wide range of recorded crimes, including violence against the person, domestic burglary, vehicle crime and anti-social behaviour. Describing the detection rates by the PSNI, these are benchmarked against other jurisdictions, followed by a section on public confidence in the police service. The chapter ends with a section interpreting PSNI performance and the indicators adopted by the Policing Board, and finally it notes alternative approaches to performance management.
