Tilley awards for problem-oriented partnerships

The Home Office has announced the Tilley awards national finalists for 2010 and the winner of the standalone category.

The standalone category was open to partnerships that could show that they had successfully embedded problem solving in their area.

The 11 national finalists involve projects that have slashed youth violence and disorder, reduced distraction burglary, tackled antisocial behaviour and saved thousands of pounds by successfully reducing theft in their areas.

The winner of this year’s standalone category is the safer capital Cardiff (SCC) partnership. It was nominated for its transforming neighbourhoods model which saw six multi-agency teams set up to cover the same areas as the town’s safer neighbourhood police teams. The teams have regular meetings with police and community safety groups and their own dedicated budget allowing them to respond quickly to any problems with antisocial behaviour or low level crime in their areas.
