Robust Enforcement

We will ensure the police and other partners such as courts, prosecutors, probation and local authorities are using criminal justice and other enforcement processes effectively to keep Cambridgeshire and Peterborough safe.

The core role of policing remains: to maintain public order, prevent crime and pursue and bring to justice those who break the law.

The Commissioner will continue to hold the Chief Constable to account for progress in cutting crime.

This includes the Constabulary’s performance against Government’s published national policing priorities.

We now have more police officers in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough than ever before. This enables the Constabulary’s commitment to neighbourhood policing to be maintained and enhanced.

The Commissioner will continue to make the case to the Government for a fairer funding settlement for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

The Criminal Justice Board for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is chaired by the Commissioner. Its purpose is to contribute to improving the Criminal Justice System locally by bringing together senior representatives from the relevant criminal justice agencies such as the police, courts and the Crown Prosecution Service.

The work of the Criminal Justice Board is supported by wider work across partner agencies to improve co-ordination across the system and to protect local communities. This includes ‘IOM’ – Integrated Offender Management arrangements which support Cambridgeshire Constabulary, probation, and other services to work together to supervise and rehabilitate those who commit a lot of repeat crime in our communities, such as burglary, robbery and theft, to reduce reoffending. deal with those who repeatedly commit a large amount of repeat crime. Cambridgeshire Constabulary, probation, and other services also work together through ‘MAPPA’ – Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements to monitor and rehabilitate those who present a risk of serious harm in our communities, through crimes such as domestic abuse, child sexual abuse and criminal exploitation, modern slavery and human trafficking and serious sex offences, in order to protect victims and local communities.
