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 7th September,  the Commissioner released her second annual report after it was formally endorsed by the PoliceFront cover of the annual report 2022/23 and Crime Panel.

The report provides an overview of Emily Spurrell’s activities and key successes over the 2022/23 financial year, providing a snapshot of the work being undertaken to deliver on the priorities set out in her Police and Crime Plan.

It covers key achievements including the recruitment of 665 new police officers, reductions in serious violence, gun crime and knife crime and the launch of the Victim Care Merseyside hub, providing specialist support for victims of crime.

It details how the Commissioner has secured more than £11m of extra funding for vital crime prevention initiatives and to support victims of crime across the region.

The report also shines a spotlight on some of the key projects being undertaken during the past year to increase the safety of people and communities in Merseyside including the Clear, Hold, Build campaign EVOLVE which works to tackle serious violence, the Safer Streets Merseyside initiative working to prevent Violence against Women and Girls and the You’re Safe Here scheme focused on creating safe spaces across the city.
