About The Site


Site Info

About The Site

The Crime Reduction Website is aimed at practitioners to help them achieve and sustain reductions in crime and disorder. The website was launched in July 2000 by the Home Secretary in response to a need for a web-based interactive resource where practitioners, policy-makers and others can find guidance on good practice to which they can add new ideas and identified local solutions.

The Toolkits are an integral part of the website and provide a consolidated and comprehensive approach to crime reduction through partnership working. The Toolkits adopt a problem-solving approach for use by police, local authorities, health, voluntary and private sectors, and others involved in helping to reduce crime and disorder locally.

The website is designed to be a working tool. It is text-rich to meet the need for hard information to be accessed quickly and to ensure that website pages look the same on different browsing software. Pages are fast to download and print clearly on a variety of hardware.

The Crime Reduction Centre manages the website on behalf of the wider crime reduction community. The active participation of Home Office policy units, other government departments, the police, local authorities and other groups (such as Secured by Design) is a major feature in ensuring that the site remains relevant to the needs of its users.

The website is developed and managed in partnership with the Association of Chief Police Officers (England & Wales), the Local Government Association, Nacro, Crime Concern, Centrex, Criminal Justice IT, the National Community Safety Network and the Home Office.
