£7,000.00 funding will enable NERCP to continue delivery of the following services and initiatives within Cleveland:

  • One managed strategic platform for the business community, police and partners to find solutions to regional and local retail crime issues.
  • One managed regional intelligence hub where retailers and police can share information safely and effectively to detect and prevent crime and disorder.
  • One managed regional hub for local ShopWatch schemes to receive strategic and operational support.
  • The identification of prolific, travelling and organised offenders involved in retail crime and the effective tackling of offender displacement.
  • Timely, intelligence led initiatives and campaigns aimed at the business community and general public e.g. purse dipping, counterfeit currency.
  • Diverting young people from retail crime.
  • Promotion of restorative approaches within the business community when dealing with retail crime.
  • Delivery of training and education to raise awareness of M.O’s offenders, crime series/trends etc.
  • Co-ordination and management of regular events to raise the profile of retail crime and recognise the work being done throughout the region and the UK.
  • Recognition of units and individuals delivering outstanding contribution to tackling retail crime.

In addition to this, £5,635.00 funding will be utilised to establish a ShopWatch scheme in Stockton town centre. This will incorporate one day a week of NERCP staff time to:

  • Engage with local business and enroll them to the scheme
  • Provide strategic support for the scheme

 2016-32435 Procurement Report for
the Provision of Personal Protective Carriers
Cleveland Police have an ageing Fleet of Personal Protective Carriers, which are due for

replacement due to their age and mileage. There has previously been no specific route tomarket for the provision of these vehicles, without Forces having to carry out their own local procurement.

West Midlands Police procurement department facilitated the procurement exercise on behalf of the collaborative working group (which consisted of 32 other forces) and worked with fleet and procurement representatives from each force to agree and develop a specification.

A collaborative procurement exercise was conducted through the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) vehicle framework contracts.

In order to achieve efficiencies and economies of scale based on the overall operational vehicle volumes required from each force, the collaborative group agreed to use a further competition exercise as the most cost effective route to procuring from the framework contracts.

West Midlands Police evaluated the responses in line with the criteria that they set out in the procurement to ensure that the proposed vehicle and conversion met the requirements of the agreed specification.

The new collaborative vehicle contracts are went live on the 19th December 2016 for an initial period of 24 months; there are options to extend the contracts further by two periods of 12 months.
