The HMIC – PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy programme) report gave Sussex Police a “Good” in several areas of ASB.
Use of Police Tactics: Partnership working and information sharing
“Sussex Police has developed a commendable range of mature partnerships which are helping it to prevent and reduce crime. These are characterised by routine sharing of information and a common risk management process that enables all partners to understand vulnerabilities associated with individuals.
A shared web-based case management system known as ECINS facilitates the development of joint action plans to support victims and tackle offenders. For example, tasks are assigned to partners through ECINS and officers are held accountable through the anti-social behaviour action group, which meets on a monthly basis”.
Community contact and victim care: Partnership working
“Dedicated analysts collate and analyse data provided by partner service providers. This is an essential part of the development of anti-social behaviour action plans and case management on ECINS.
In particular, it is important in the early identification of emerging trends of anti-social behaviour, and informs the development of interventions to prevent them from escalating”.
