Reverse the trend in serious violence

“Our objective is to catch criminals and support early intervention to improve public safety”

Criminal with large sharp knife

Working with partners we will:

  • Develop a Violence Prevention Strategy across Essex and support partners to reduce the level of violence.
  • Jointly commission effective prevention and diversionary activity for those at risk of involvement in violent crime, in particular children and young people.
  • Deliver education and community programmes to help prevent knife crime.
  • Bring violent offenders to justice through targeted police enforcement, working closely with neighbourhood forces such as the Metropolitan Police.
  • Deliver co-located responses to tackle drug and alcohol misuse – getting more people away from dependency into treatment.
  • Improve management of dangerous offenders in the community by closer collaboration with probation and criminal justice partners.
  • Ensure victims of rape and sexual violence receive the help and support they need, and work with criminal justice partners to ensure that perpetrators are convicted.

So that the number of people killed and seriously injured as a result of serious violence across Essex is significantly reduced.
