Crime and Disorder Reduction Report

The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 requires that all responsible authorities (as defined in Section 5 of the act) implement:-

  1. a strategy for the reduction of crime and disorder in the area (including anti-social and other behaviour adversely affecting the local environment),
  2. a strategy for combatting the misuse of drugs, alcohol and other substances in the area,
  3. a strategy for the reduction of re-offending in the area and
  4. a strategy for preventing people from becoming involved in serious violence in the area, and reducing instances of serious violence in the area.


The PCC may require a report from the responsible authorities only if—

(a) the PCC is not satisfied that the responsible authorities for the area are carrying out their functions under section 6 in an effective and efficient manner, and

(b) the PCC considers it reasonable and proportionate in all the circumstances to require a report


As of December 2023 no report has been required by the PCC.
