Your Partnership will need to meet and discuss the key findings of the Audit.
It will then need to consider what it is going to do about the identified crime
and disorder problems.
Each of the key partners, including the police, local authority, fire service probation
and health authority will be devising their own strategic plans with objectives and
targets. Some of these targets will have been guided by national strategies and others
will be planned in response to locally identified needs.
Drafting the Partnership's response to alcohol-related crime and disorder problems
should take account of individual agencies' own service objectives. Policing plan
objectives for reductions in violence and disorder, health authority plans to reduce
alcohol-related injuries, and strategies which incorporate or complement the objectives
of key partners, enabling them to work in partnership to achieve their own goals,
are more likely to succeed.
Development of other local plans
Although the primary purpose of the audit is to assist in
developing strategies to tackle crime and disorder, it can also
provide useful information for developing.
- Local Policing Plans
- Youth Justice Plans
- Children’s Services Plan
- Local Transport Plan
- Social Inclusion Partnership Plans (e.g. SRBs, New Deal for
Communities, Health & Education Action Zone Plans)
- Health Improvement Plan
- Housing Strategies
- Community Care Plan
- Drug Action Plan
- Probation Service Business Plan
- Internal corporate & business plans)
Key partners should also be encouraged to
incorporate the partnership's goals in relation to tackling crime
and disorder into their own service plans, taking account of the
audit findings for their service. They will then be in a better
position to identify their own specific contribution to the work of
the partnership. This will assist Crime & Disorder Partnerships
in complying with s17 of the Crime & Disorder Act, which
requires partner agencies to review the community safety
implications of their work.
It is, therefore incumbent on each agency to come
to a partnership or inter-agency task group meeting outlining:
- its strategic priorities in relation to tackling crime and
- what it can contribute to tackling crime and disorder
The Group as a whole can then consider the
resulting agenda, looking at
- Areas of agreement & disagreement
- What is known about effective practice in tackling specific
- Agree priorities for action
After the meeting individual partners will need to endorse the
