Crime Reduction - Helping to Reduce Crime in Your Area

Publications Publications and Publicity



The Vigilance programme is a £4.4m package of support to ensure local areas have the necessary tools, training and plans in place to tackle crimes of burglary and robbery before they become entrenched. That includes a crackdown on known offenders, particularly offenders released from short term prison sentences, pre-emptive support, training and additional resources. The 35 participating areas are those that have started to see rises in these crimes over the last 12 months. The monthly e-update will keep you informed about the programme, and help exchange and share good practice.
