Supporting victims of crime is one of the key areas of focus in the Police and Crime Plan for Essex and must be at the heart of everything we do.
As Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, my overall ambition is for there to be fewer victims of crime in Essex, and we can help achieve this by reducing crime right across the county. When a crime does take place, victims should have the best possible help and support, both from Essex Police and from local support services.
The way that funding for victims’ services flows from central government to groups and organisations here in Essex is fundamentally changing. From October 2014 to March 2015, £600,000 came to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner to support victims and restorative justice. In 2015-16, it was £1.8 million which included additional money for victims’ referral and assessment.
