Derbyshire Police Excellent Report.
Derbyshire police is performing well, according to an independent report.
An audit on police forces in England and Wales looked at how constabularies operated, as well as how they compiled crime data during 2006-7.
Forces were given one of four ratings in different categories: poor, fair, good or excellent.
Derbyshire scored "excellent" ratings in six of the nine individual crime recording categories.
However, the report highlighted below-standard recording for both violent crime and acquisitive offences, which include theft and robbery.
The force has now vowed to make improvements in those areas.
A Derbyshire Constabulary spokeswoman said: "Overall, it's a very positive picture that shows the vast majority of our recording is either excellent or good.
"We'll be looking to see why we scored poor for violent crime and acquisitive and what we can do to improve it."
"It's an administrative problem rather than an investigative one."
The report was prepared by the Audit Commission, which judged forces on a number of criteria.
Crime data quality was found to be good overall. In 2005-6 was rated as excellent.
In a breakdown of offences recorded during 2006-7, Derbyshire was rated excellent for data on burglary, vehicle crime, firearms offences, criminal damage, disturbances and domestic violence.
