Tactical Violence Reduction Partnership
Partner Agencies work together to respond to needs and risks in our communities. Local partnership systems and meetings are central to a public health approach because the long term reduction of violence cannot be achieved by prosecuting people. Different partners have access to different skills, levers and mechanisms to effect change in communities and individuals.
Partners need to know how to use their time and resources in a way that improves population health, safety and wellbeing by reducing serious violence. Public health approaches are always consciously located within a wider system – which includes communities – rather than thought of in isolation.
As a VRP we understand this and work together to develop our systems and processes that deal with people at risk of being involved in violence and those geographic ‘hot spots’ where violence occurs. The Tactical Violence Reduction Partnership (TVRP) is joint chaired by the VRU Director and the Strategic Lead for Serious Violence in Hampshire and IOW Constabulary Ch Supt Clare Jenkins. The group brings partners together to consider how best to identify risky people and geographic hot spots and then work together to make our communities safer taking a problem solving approach.
If you are a partner and you wish to attend the TVRP or you wish to further understand how your agency can assist with a systems response please contact VRU@hampshire.police.uk.
