Survey shows confidence in Cleveland Police
People on Teesside are mostly happy with local policing, according to an independent survey.
A market research company questioned 1,200 residents from April to September.
It found that 89.7% of them were "very" or "fairly" confident with the force's ability to deal with local problems.
In addition, two thirds (66.9%) of people surveyed thought that the police in their area were doing a "good" or "excellent" job.
Participants were asked a number of questions about living in their local area, accessibility to neighbourhood policing teams, contact with the police, and problems in the local area.
Chief Constable Sean Price said: "The efforts of our officers and staff working for Cleveland Police and our partner organisations have made a real difference.
"I would reassure people that we will do our best to protect front-line services and continue our efforts to improve further confidence in the service we deliver."
