The Commissioner produces an Annual Report each year to inform the public and our partners on the progress that has been made against her Police and Crime Plan.

This report gives both the public and the body which oversees her work, the Police and Crime Panel, the opportunity to review her activities and work and provide their feedback.

These reports cover each financial year. All feedback on the report is welcomed. Please use our Contact page to give us your views.


On 22nd April 2021,  the Commissioner released her ninth and final annual report after it was formally endorsed by the Police and Crime Panel.

The report entitled ‘A year like no other' reflected on Jane Kennedy’s final year of office and the challenges causes by the global coronavirus pandemic.

The Commissioner used her 2020/21 Annual Report to praise Merseyside Police for the way they stepped up to the challenges of policing in the face of the unprecedented challenges of the coronavirus pandemic. The Commissioner  also thanked community safety and voluntary partners and the public for their support during her nine years in post.

The report highlights how, thanks to careful financial planning and the support of the public, the Force is now in the strongest position it has been for a decade, with 500 new officers recruited last year and plans to bring another 160 new officers in over the next 12 months.

The report provides an update on the PCC’s work to deliver on her policing priorities over the last 12 months, highlights the progress which on her 10-year estates strategy to improve the force’s stations and facilities and provides case studies on some of the major projects on which the PCC has focussed in the last few years, including Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Partnership (VRP) and her Domestic Abuse Workplace scheme.

The report has been produced as an interactive PDF and includes infographics, diagrams and case studies.
