Saving Lives. Reducing Harm. Protecting the Public: An action plan for tackling violence 2008-11

Serious violence covers a wide range of offences, including homicide and serious wounding, offences involving weapons, domestic violence, hate crime and serious sexual offences including rape. These crimes are extremely rare: together they account for only about 1% of all crime. Yet when they do occur they cause significant harm, both to individual victims and their families in terms of physical injury and psychological trauma, and to society more widely in terms of fear.

This Plan sets out a range of actions we will be driving forward to reduce priority crime types, including gun and gang-related crime; knife crime; and sexual and domestic violence.
