3. Priorities 2012-15
In 2011, the Devon and Cornwall Peninsula Crime and Disorder Strategic Assessment was used to identify what the common crime and disorder issues are and how service delivery may benefit from a peninsula wide approach to them. In addition, the partnership has taken into account feedback from members of the public via various forms of consultation such as ‘Have Your Say’, PACT. (Partners and Communities Together), Neighbourhood Assessments and through the contacts that attend the Local Action Group meetings.
As a result of the statistical evidence and feedback from our local communities, our priorities for the next three years will be as follows:
- Raise awareness of the issues of domestic abuse and the support services available
- Tackle problem alcohol misuse
- Reduce by five per cent incidents of anti-social behaviour
- Promote and develop the Local Action Groups
All communities across East and Mid Devon will continue to receive a high standard of support from agencies, and will be encouraged to contribute, in order to achieve these objectives.
