Derbyshire Police

This case study was written under our Crowd Insight's previous name- Votech

CHALLENGE Running a number of meetings across the county with large audiences. Derbyshire Police wanted to share performance data and financials, as well as gauge opinion and encourage feedback.

Accurately recording this information for further analysis was essential, whilst sharing the responses with the audience was also important.

HOW WE HELPED We worked with Derbyshire Police to set up presentations which recorded audience responses at key points via our audience response systems. This enabled the attendees to vote with confidence knowing their individual response was confidential.

This was superior to the show of hands approach that had been adopted at previous events. Displaying the total response graphically helped both the audience and the police to quickly understand the strength of feeling.

Following the success of these events the voting is now also used for internal consultation, allowing staff to remain anonymous and ensuring quality feedback.

RESULTS The audience fed back that they enjoyed participating and found the evenings enlightening and informative.

Two of the attendees wrote to the Derbyshire Times: "We were very pleased that the audience had an opportunity to vote on certain aspects of the police budget through the use of hand held voting consoles, an excellent idea which made everybody inclusive in the auditorium".

Brian Carpenter, responsible for Corporate Communications at Derbyshire Constabulary had this to say: "Having seen other audience response systems demonstrated I am very pleased indeed that our organisation purchased the Votech system. Votech is so much more flexible and easy to operate, this is really important to us, as we have a number of people delivering presentations. We have received thorough one to one training, and use Votech's comprehensive training packages to help first time users. .
