Police, Crime and Victims Plan 2021-2024 Consultation

The draft Police and Crime Plan for 2021-24 was presented to the Police and Crime Panel by PCC Joy Allen on the 19th of July 2021.

The plan is currently out for public consultation. You can read the draft Police and Crime Plan 21-24 here.

The Police and Crime Plan sets out the PCC’s Vision, the outcomes they wish to achieve, along with twelve key priorities which will be the focus over the life of the plan.

The plan builds on the foundations of the previous plan, and once again emphasises the role of the PCC in holding the Constabulary to account.

The Plan sets out the PCC’s vision, “County Durham and Darlington are areas where all communities are safe, victims and vulnerable people feel supported, crime and reoffending are low, and people have confidence in policing and the criminal justice system’.

The plan is a refreshed version of the previous plan. It introduces four ‘outcomes’, replacing the three ‘aims’ in the previous plan.

  • Communities are safe and crime is reduced
  • Victims and the vulnerable feel supported
  • Reoffending is reduced and rehabilitation is improved
  • People have confidence in the police and the criminal justice system

This change emphasises the importance of delivery, in partnership.  It also takes the objectives of the Local Criminal Justice Partnership (LCJP) Plan, and the action plans of the two Community Safety Partnerships and associates them with the new outcomes of the Plan. The new plan therefore represents real co-delivery by a wide partnership of organisations.

Putting victims first remains the golden thread of the plan, with a stronger emphasis on reducing re-offending.
