The latest results of our national detectives’ survey show a service in crisis, with 73% of officers saying that they were not able to provide the service victims needed most or all of the time.

Norfolk Detective Survey results - 2017 we had a total of 88 responses.

Detectives in Crisis campaign

Morale is at rock bottom and resilience in this critical role in policing is a real issue.  The workloads and types of cases detective officers get involved in are harrowing to say the least, all too often having a detrimental effect on their health, wellbeing and family life.

‘Detectives in Crisis’ aims to raise awareness of the current state of detective policing in England and Wales - we are asking senior officers and PCCs to look at this role within their force area to better support officers and to try to redress the balance.
