Snippets and Notes THE HOME OFFICE STRATEGIC PLAN: CONFIDENT COMMUNITIES IN A SECURE BRITAIN The Prime Minister and the Home Secretary launched the Strategic Plan in July. Its five key objectives are to ensure: • people are and feel more secure in their homes and daily lives • more offenders are caught, punished and stop offending, and victims are treated better • fewer people’s lives are ruined by drugs and alcohol • citizens, communities and the voluntary sector are more fully engaged in tackling social problems, with more equality of opportunity and respect for people of all races and religions • abuse of the asylum laws and illegal immigration are under control so that legal migrants can be welcomed. A supporting document, Modelling Crime Reduction for the Home Office Strategic Plan, suggests the feasibility of a crime reduction target of 15% by 2007/8. Some of the proposals are: • Existing funding streams will merge into a Safer and Stronger Communities Fund worth £660 million over three years. This will assist local authorities and other agencies, including the police, to work together to tackle crime, anti-social behaviour and poor public spaces, for example by funding better home security and CCTV. • Neighbourhood policing http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Safer Communities Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE HOME OFFICE STRATEGIC PLAN: CONFIDENT COMMUNITIES IN A SECURE BRITAIN The Prime Minister and the Home Secretary launched the Strategic Plan in July. Its five key objectives are to ensure: • people are and feel more secure in their homes and daily lives • more offenders are caught, punished and stop offending, and victims are treated better • fewer people’s lives are ruined by drugs and alcohol • citizens, communities and the voluntary sector are more fully engaged in tackling social problems, with more equality of opportunity and respect for people of all races and religions • abuse of the asylum laws and illegal immigration are under control so that legal migrants can be welcomed. A supporting document, Modelling Crime Reduction for the Home Office Strategic Plan, suggests the feasibility of a crime reduction target of 15% by 2007/8. Some of the proposals are: • Existing funding streams will merge into a Safer and Stronger Communities Fund worth £660 million over three years. This will assist local authorities and other agencies, including the police, to work together to tackle crime, anti-social behaviour and poor public spaces, for example by funding better home security and CCTV. • Neighbourhood policing
