Preventing Crime

A core part of the Commissioner’s role is to support policing by preventing crime and reducing offending. 

These are just a few of the projects that the Commissioner currently supports to achieve this aim.



Motiv8 exists to improve the life chances of young people and families. We do this to reduce offending, anti-social behaviour and the risk disengagement from learning or employment.
