Developing a multi-agency approach to prevent and address complex community safety and crime challenges

A partnership event between the East of England LGA, national LGA, East of England Offices of the Police and Crime Commissioners and Public Health England.

Community safety is not just an issue for police and fire and rescue authorities. A multi-agency approach is key to tackling complex community safety and crime problems and partnership approaches are now strongly embedded in the way in which local areas are approaching this agenda.

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected for the second time in 2016, and have a central role in working alongside local agencies such as local authorities, health, the Probation Trust, fire and rescue service and the criminal justice system, to ensure there is a joined-up approach to preventing and reducing crime. 

Against a background of austerity, this event is an opportunity to understand how effective partnership approaches can tackling some of the key challenges and will:

  • Increase understanding around key community safety challenges
  • Share good practice around innovative approaches and partnership work that prevents duplication and improves outcomes.
  • Identify where there are opportunities for greater collaboration and integration locally and regionally

Featuring expert advice, practical case studies, interactive workshops and great networking opportunities, this event will showcase examples of successful crime prevention and community safety initiatives.

Do you have examples of good practice or innovative multi-agency approaches to community safety and crime challenges in your area? Would you like to showcase your work to others in the region?

There will be two interactive workshops with opportunities to share and discuss work from the East of England:

  • Complex problems/Systematic solutions
  • Early intervention and prevention
