I have used the PCC role to organise and host a series of multi-agency anti-social behaviour (ASB) summits, to bring agencies together to discuss how best to implement new ASB powers available to police, local authorities and registered social landlords through changes in legislation. Most recently, I have responded to a proposed consultation advocating for victims of ASB to be included as part of the refreshed national Victims Code of Practice, to ensure they are entitled to the same rights and entitlements as victims of crime.
I’ve also organised other multi-agency events including: retail crime summits, disability hate crime events, ECINS multi-agency meetings, a community cohesion consultation for a national review; plus two Cleveland-wide asylum seeker good practice events and a number of criminal justice volunteers fairs.
I have also represented the North East on the National Police Air Service Board served since 2014 and we’ve overseen development of a comprehensive service across the country delivering air support to our forces and communities.
To allow agencies to work together to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour, a need was identified for a technological solution to allow quick and easy information sharing between organisations. I invested in a computer system (ECINS) which allows partners to input and examine case files on individuals of interest to a range of agencies or groups. In 2019 there were a total of 826 cases created on ECINS. ECINS is currently being used for the following:
To support joined up work between Neighbourhood officers and community safety teams in tackling antisocial behaviour
Supporting partnership work between Integrated Offender Management Unit and the Divert deferred prosecution scheme
Sharing information to support problem solving between Cleveland Police and other statutory partners
Identifying and supporting vulnerable individuals across all agencies
Supporting the Team Around the Family process in Hartlepool and the Transformation Challenge team in Redcar and Cleveland
ECINS is being used in the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) project with Cleveland Police, schools and the voluntary sector in Middlesbrough
