Honour Based Violence and Forced Marriage (HALO) Project

The Halo Project is meeting the needs of victims of Forced Marriage and Honour Based Violence by acting as the lead agency for key stakeholders, partnerships and agencies providing specialist provision, awareness and safeguarding for victims.

During the transition period to Police and Crime Commissioners the Transition Programme Board agreed a contribution of £10k in support of re-launching the HALO project and the Force agree a further £5k. One year on the Halo Project Team has expanded due the volume of cases being dealt with.

The Halo Project Team have therefore requested continuation of funding for a further year. Other Organisations including Vela Group, Middlesbrough Council, Middlesbrough College, Tees Health, Fabrick Group, Northstar Housing Group and Coast and Country Housing are continuing their support of the project. Funding awarded would be utilised in support of victims which is priority of the PCC.

Arrest Referral

The Cleveland Police Arrest Referral Scheme engages those people, at the point of arrest, whose offending is linked to drug or alcohol misuse. By seeing the offender as soon as possible after they are arrested, Arrest Referral workers can offer a pathway into harm reduction, treatment and rehabilitation services.

The Police and Crime commissioner is asked to review the current arrangements for the Arrest Referral Scheme contract within custody, which comes to an end in April 2014



49 – 2013

Mobile Voice and Data Services Contract

The Government Procurement Services have awarded a PSN Services Framework on behalf of the Public Sector. The PSN Services Framework is split into 10 lots covering a range of services. Lot 6 is for the Provision of Mobile Voice and Data Services and has the option to directly award a contract to one of the six suppliers on the framework.

Taking into consideration the cost to change to another provider and the network coverage in the Cleveland area, a direct award approach is the only viable option that meet operational requirements for mobile use and offers the best value for money.
