Volume 461: debated on Monday 11 June 2007

14. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what role he expects Safer Neighbourhood Teams to play in reducing the number of criminal damage offences. (141138)

Neighbourhood Policing Teams can play a vital role with others in tackling criminal damage.

They get to know people in their local neighbourhoods so that they have a better understanding of the nature and extent of the problem and what contributions others can make to reducing it.

They can then work with a range of agencies who can take action in line with local priorities, as well as taking police enforcement action where appropriate.
