Prevention and early intervention

Improving safeguarding in physical and virtual space

A report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) noted ‘The police service must place as much emphasis on preventing crime as it does on responding to and investigating crime once it has happened.’ Prevention or earlier intervention with children, young adults, and people with multiple needs who come into repeated contact with the police is the key to ending ‘revolving door’ offending.

Prevention and early intervention are vast in scope but the following areas require particular attention:

• Cyber and digital crime (henceforth referred to as ‘cybercrime’)

• Young people at risk

• Perceptions of crime

• Whole place approaches
