What we will do
- Through Operation Protect we will combat the
‘binge-drinking’ culture, supporting those licensed premises that
act responsibly and targeting those that do not.
- With our partners we will ensure that
victims, especially of serious offences, are provided with
effective support such as through the Sexual Assault
Referral Centre (SARC) or through independent domestic or
sexual violence advisors.
- We will identify and target serial
perpetrators of domestic abuse and violence, supporting those
willing to change.
- We will provide the young members of
our community with information in ways that have been shown to
reduce the risks they face.
- We will establish a multi-agency
safeguarding hub (MASH) to enhance information sharing and risk
