Early findings from an online survey conducted by East Cambridgeshire Police have revealed that residents would prioritise the seizure of uninsured and untaxed vehicles if they had the control over officers.
Detective Chief Inspector Donna Wass’ survey asked residents to “think about the things that have happened to you in the last couple of weeks” and where they would place officers in the next two weeks.
Recent results from the survey suggest that the first priority remains with high visibility reassurance patrols and taking uninsured vehicles off the road, with both taking over 20% of votes.
Other issues the public would prioritise are people using mobile phones at the wheel and prevention and detection of burglaries, which took just over 15% of votes each.
The results will come as welcome news to East Cambs police, whose priorities were questioned and labelled as “skewed” on social media after they posted evidence of an uninsured vehicle being seized online.

Sergeant Phil Priestley said: “We had some concerns voiced last in a number of private messages regarding uninsured vehicles - we’ve responded to that concern to demonstrate that we listen and that we take action.”
