ECINS

The Partnership was informed that ECINS would continue to remain on the SSP agenda. There would be a re-launch of ECINS with the PCC to help get ECINS bedded into the teams that had been difficult to reach to date. There had been some recent successes, one being bringing some elements of Adults Services that deal with safeguarding on-line. The Partnership was updated with regard to the Crime and Disorder Select Committee findings from its recent review of ECINS. A wrap up report would be brought to the next meeting of the Partnership.

Members were presented with a report on recorded crime and disorder.

The report provided an overview on recorded crime and anti-social behaviour incidents in the borough of Stockton for the time period April 2019 to the end of October 2019.

The bulk of the statistics utilised for the report had been obtained from Cleveland Police crime statistic database with the figures correct at the time of writing (12/11.19). The data was extracted from ‘live’ systems and therefore remained the subject of on-going operational activity, audit and scrutiny, and therefore may result in slight amendments to some of the statistical information in future publications.

Crime details for Darlington, who form part of the Tees Valley area, were not available at the time of writing.

The report would be not provide any detailed analysis unless there were any significant changes to patterns or trends.

A comparison against other similar Community Safety Partnerships utilising iQuanta was noted within a separate report. This report was a restricted document due to the statistical information only made available as an intelligence tool until released by the Home Office.

Members discussed the issue of the changing of the recording categories and that previously comparable positions were difficult to show. Now as the figures were coming out of that phase the figures showed that in many areas there were now real reductions in terms of offences. It was felt that there was some really good work happening on the ground with partners.
