A SURVEY measuring public confidence in Cambridgeshire Police has turned up mixed results for the constabulary.
While more than 80 per cent of people surveyed said they had confidence in the force, little more than 52 per cent of people agreed that police were doing a good or very good job.
The results were taken from a survey of more than 3500 across the county, with the responses revealing that more work needed to be done by officers despite a number of improvements made by the force in recent months and years.
Head of Cambridgeshire Constabulary Julie Spence, welcomed the results, "Overall we are proud of these results and the way you support the force but we will always strive to do better and the results of this survey will help us do just that.
"We remain one of the most improving forces in England and Wales. We are also one of the lowest funded, as I am sure you know, serving one of the fastest growing counties so we believe the service we provide offers good value for money.
The survey was carried out for the first time in 2009/10 by the Cambridgeshire Police Authority, which intends to renew the survey on a yearly basis.

As well as measuring the public's confidence the survey also looked into views on anti-social behaviour and while it found that around 60 per cent of people thought that the police were dealing with anti-social behaviour in the area, just 45 per cent felt that they were being kept well informed about how officers were tackling it.
