SSP

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 Neighbourhood Policing and how this might look in the future. The positive outcome rates and the genuine reduction rates within the Borough were also discussed. The fear of crime results would be interesting to see in the MORI poll that would be taking place in the future. The positive news and the communications strategy was important and should be considered at a future meeting of the Partnership.

The Partnership considered a report that had been presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board in December 2019.

The report outlined that Around one in five (27%) of the adult population in Stockton-on-Tees do less than 30minutes physical activity per week. Inactivity poses a considerable risk to healthy life expectancy: living well, and greatly increases the likelihood for requiring health and care interventions for a longer proportion of life.

Following the Peer Review on Physical Activity in September 2018 and the development and subsequent approval of the JSNA in January 2019 by Health and wellbeing Partnerships, a physical activity framework for action has now been developed. The framework was approved by the Adults Health & Wellbeing Partnership in June 2019. The framework was developed with input from across the local authority in recognition of the role Stockton Borough Council has in realising a vision of More People, More Active, More Often: the design of infrastructure e.g. spatial and urban design, transport, parks and green spaces and the provision of services e.g. sports and leisure, education and adult social care.

The Partnership was informed that at the Health and Wellbeing Board they had asked that the Partnership look at safety within parks in the Borough. The Partnership agreed that it would that it would look at this issue at a future meeting of the Partnership.
SSP

The Partnership considered a report on YOT Board Performance Q2 2019-20.

So far in 2019/20, there had been outcomes for 287 offences committed by 70 10-17 year olds; 4.1 offences per child. It was therefore projected that there would be around 574 offences for the whole year by approximately 140 children.

This projection represented an increase on last year but a decrease on previous years: 550 offences in 2018/19 by 212 10-17 year olds; 758 offences in 2016/17 by 290 children, and 695 offences in 2015/16 by 337 children. However this Quarter there had been a large increase in Motoring Offences, moving up from 12 in Q1 to 88 in Q2 and this ties in with the Police’s Operation on Off-Road Bikes so this should only be a temporary spike. Whereas the 2nd highest offence of Violence Against The Person had proportionally decreased against Q1 with 59 offences against a projection of 68 offences.

The report detailed:-

- Offence Types, Q2 2019/20
- Children Offending by Age and Gender Q2 2019/20
- Re-offending Rates
- Custody Rates
SSP
58/19

- Reduce Crime Linked to Alcohol and Drug Misuse
- Community Safety and Protection
SSP

The Partnership was updated with regard to the MORI survey that would be carried out in the near future.
