Early in­ter­ven­tion

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Bill Skelly, the na­tional polic­ing lead for crime record­ing and statis­tics, said: “To­day’s of­fi­cers are deal­ing with more com­plex crime, more safe­guard­ing and pro­tect­ing vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple and an un­prece­dented ter­ror threat, as well as tack­ling some of the gen­uine rises in knife and gun crime, rob­bery, bur­glary and ve­hi­cle-re­lated crimes which turn the trend on many years of re­duc­tions.

“Our re­sponse in­volves good proac­tive polic­ing, de­vel­op­ing spe­cial­ist ca­pa­bil­i­ties for more com­plex crime and ef­fec­tively in­ter­ven­ing early.”
