WARWICKSHIRE - OUR COUNTY 1998-2001
Priority : Crime

To reduce crime and anti-social behaviour

The Government’s new Crime and Disorder Act 1998 puts a joint responsibility on the County Council, the District Councils and the Police to find ways of reducing crime and of helping communities to cut crime. We are working with the newly formed Crime and Disorder Partnerships and communities to support ways of reducing crime and tackling people’s concerns about crime.

Targets:

  • We will provide cash each year from our Community Safety Fund for local anti-crime projects and, in partnership with the Heart of England Community Foundation, we will obtain additional contributions from private businesses.
     
  • We will, with our partners, carry out an analysis of crime in each district and find out the public’s concerns by February 1999.
     
  • We will work with our partners to publish local strategies in each district spelling out how we will combat crime over a 3–year period, including targets, by April 1999.
     
  • We will, in partnership with Health colleagues, meet government targets for 1999 in assessing, reducing and managing the risks posed by people with severe anti-social mental health disorders living in the community.
     
  • We will, by April 2000, develop a Youth Justice Plan in conjunction with the Probation Service and other agencies working with young offenders to reduce the risk of offending.
     
  • We will aim to reduce the rate of offending for children in care, for 1999 and 2000, making it closer to the rate of the local population.
