I’m a Policeman and don’t you realise that you can be a good Police Officer/Police Force in a high crime area or an ineffective one in a low crime one?

Yes of course. Correlation is not causation. There is no unicausal relationship between the level and quality of policing and the level of crime. But people still want to know what crime is like in their area or within a Police Force relative to another because their overriding concern is relative risk.
