The police service and community partners are facing an unprecedented increase in local demand generated by complex social problems such as mental health related incidents, missing children, homelessness and substance misuse. Alongside this, we have seen a greater willingness to report previously ‘hidden crimes’ such as child sexual abuse and domestic violence, which are more complex to prevent and investigate.
Our 8th Annual Conference looked at how the police can work together in a genuinely integrated way, with other agencies and citizens, to prevent crime and solve complex problems holistically. It presented some of the best and most innovative examples of integrated place-based working from around the UK and discussed how public service systems as a whole need to address the more complex times in which we live.
