The national priorities for policing are as follows:

  • reduce murder and other homicide
  • reduce serious violence
  • disrupt drugs supply and county lines
  • reduce neighbourhood crime
  • tackle cyber crime
  • and improve satisfaction among victims, with a particular focus on victims of domestic abuse.

These priorities will be kept under review and further crime types may be added by the Home Office in the future. Each force has a key role in supporting the priorities, so that collectively the Home Office can see real improvements in outcomes over the four years from the baseline of June 2019.
