We will achieve this by focusing on the following areas:
Partnerships Command Team will work with internal and external stakeholders to develop a comprehensive understanding of our communities to identify harm and ensure that preventative measures are tailored to support different community’s needs.
Our Crime Prevention Police Community Support Officers and Problem-Solving Task Force will be focussed on addressing persistent crime and anti-social behaviour that affects quality of life, by utilising the latest methods in line with the College of Policing ‘What Works’ programme. To make positive long term improvements to strengthen our communities.
We will increase visibility in our community by ensuring we are in the right places at the right times to tackle violence against women and girls and work with partners to create safer spaces, with a particular focus on the night-time economy (a wide range of evening activities from a trip to the theatre or a family meal to a night out at a pub or club).
Our Community Safety Units (CSU) will work with local authorities to tackle issues raised by the public. Ranging from anti-social behaviour to serious crime in public spaces. The CSU work with a wide range of stakeholders to maximise the use of available powers to prioritise community safety and create safer spaces.
Our Schools Officers and Youth Engagement PCSOs will work closely with education providers and young people to
give young women a voice
listen to their concerns and ideas
challenge unwanted behaviours
We will intervene early to prevent young people choosing a life of crime. We will act on feedback to increase safety and lessen the fear of violence.
We will engage our communities in different ways including through ‘My Community Voice’ a two-way engagement platform that will transform how we reach and engage different communities. This will improve access to our service and enable us to respond to our communities’ concerns.
