answer text <p>Crime and risk is changing but this Government continues to believe that good neighbourhood policing remains at the core of the British model of how we protect the public. That is why we are increasing total investment in the police system by over £460m in 2018-19, of which more than £280m from increased council tax precept will go direct to forces to spend locally.</p><p>It is for operationally independent Chief Constables to decide how to best deploy officers in their force area to effectively serve and engage their communities and to build their trust and confidence. Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are elected by the public to hold Chief constables and the force to account; making the police answerable to the communities they serve.</p><p>HMICFRS has raised concerns about neighbourhood policing being eroded since the Government moved away from a centralised model. This year, inspectors found improvement but remain concerned about the balance between short-term response to demand, and longer-term prevention activity.</p><p>The College of Policing published guidelines on modernising neighbourhood policing in March 2018. This year’s HMICFRS effectiveness report recommended that forces review their approach by October 2018 against these standards. The National Police Chiefs’ Council has also established an implementation group to support forces.</p>

answer text <p>The Home Office does not set a recommended level of reserves which Police and Crime Commissioners should hold. Chief Finance Officers have a duty to report on the adequacy of reserves.</p><p>Levels of reserves reflect a number of local factors, including local financial planning decisions and assessments of risk, and it would be inappropriate for the Government to set a prescriptive level. The Home Office’s Financial Management Code of Practice sets out requirements for PCCs to be transparent about how the general reserve is set.</p> more like this

answer text <p>As we made clear in our Modern Crime Prevention Strategy, there are many factors that drive crime, and so preventing crime is the responsibility of many institutions, not just the police.</p><p>This Government has provided a strong and comprehensive settlement that is increasing total investment in the police system by over £460m in 2018-19, of which more than £280m from increased council tax precept will go direct to forces to spend locally. It is for operationally independent Chief Constables to decide how best to deploy officers in their force area.</p><p>HMICFRS’s 2017 PEEL: Effectiveness inspection graded 34 forces as good at preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, four more than in 2016. Some forces had changed their approach to neighbourhood policing to ensure sufficient officers and PCSOs dedicated to preventative and community focused activity. A Police Foundation (2017) study of changes to neighbourhood policing found that forces have pursued a variety of strategies in relation to organising neighbourhood teams.</p>
