Norfolk’s Reducing Offending Board
The current Norfolk Strategic Framework for Reducing Offending has been in place since 2016. When the Framework was launched, as one of a range of strategies designed to support delivery of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) 4-year Police and Crime Plan ‘Working together for a safer Norfolk”, it heralded a new approach to addressing offending in Norfolk, with criminal justice agencies, local authorities, health and voluntary and community sector partners across Norfolk coming together for the first time to jointly agree a new, ‘whole-system’ approach tackling youth and adult offending in the county.
Whilst it is recognised that since this time good progress has been made by partners in implementing the Framework, at its December 2018 meeting the Countywide Rehabilitation of Offenders Board agreed that with delivery of the Framework approaching the mid-term it would be timely to take stock of progress in implementing the Framework to date and to review and refresh the strategy.
The following report represents the outcome of the refresh process and priorities going forward.
