pdf icon Draft Black Country Reducing Reoffending Strategy Consultation [1Mb]

Working in partnership with other agencies from across the Black Country area will allow a coherent joined up response to reducing reoffending, whilst allowing flexibility for each individual area to focus on addressing local issues which contribute to reoffending behaviours.

Strategic priorities have been identified by looking at a range of data, trend analysis and neighbourhood concerns across the Black Country area.

The priorities identified are:

  • Prevention: Early identification and intervention to prevent offending and re-offending
  • Reoffending: Strengthening pathways to prevent the cycle of reoffending
  • High Risk/Volume Crime: Management of high risk offenders and targeting of key cohorts to reduce volume crimes

You are invited to feed in your views on the anticipated outcomes and plans under each priority. This is your opportunity to influence the response to crime and community safety delivery across Wolverhampton.

Please tell us what you think.

You can complete the survey online,  pdf icon download a survey [613kb] to complete, or you can email safer@wolverhampton.gov.uk .

You can respond individually or on behalf of a group that has met to discuss these plans and wishes to put forward a collective view.

The consultation will end on 8th May 2018.
