Cleveland Police cause of concern revisit – Preventing crime and tackling anti-social behaviour

Publication types: Letter and Revisit

Police Forces: Cleveland

Background

During our PEEL inspection of Cleveland, between 20 and 31 May 2019,  we identified six causes of concern. One of them was about the way the force prioritised crime prevention.

This was that the force doesn’t appropriately prioritise crime prevention. There is a lack of strategic direction, and the force doesn’t allocate enough resources to prevention work. Staff who carry out prevention work lack an understanding of the priorities they should be tackling

We reviewed progress against this cause of concern between 7 and 24 June 2021.

This letter summarises our findings.
