The Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board last week (17th June) approved the refreshed Police and Crime Plan / Community Safety Agreement for 2015-16 which sets out how partners will work together to reduce crime and disorder and promote safety in the county.
These documents were aligned in 2014-15 and Warwickshire remains the only area in the country to have taken this joined-up approach.
The Police and Crime Plan covers the period 2013-17 and received a light touch refresh to reflect local developments.
The Community Safety Agreement covers the period 2015-16 and was updated to reflect new priorities for the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board which are as follows:
- Violent crime – focusing on domestic and sexual violence and alcohol related violence
- Anti-social behaviour – focusing on ‘personal’ ASB
- Serious acquisitive crime – focusing on theft from vehicle offences and burglary ‘other’
- Road safety
Cross cutting themes:
- Alcohol and drugs
- Reducing re-offending – focusing on serious acquisitive crime offenders
- Cyber and business crime
- Rural crime
- Hate crime
- Operating with a family focus
