Police: Public Participation

Volume 479: debated on Monday 29 September 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent she plans to implement the recommendations contained in the report by Louise Casey, “Engaging Communities in Fighting Crime”. (223503)

[holding answer 15 September 2008]: Following the Casey review, the Home Secretary announced that we will immediately take forward Community Champions, and the Policing Green Paper "From the Neighbourhood to the National: Policing Our Communities Together" sets out our response in more detail. This includes the police service commitment to implement crime maps for every area and the new standard for the police service—The Policing Pledge—by the end of the year. The Government have appointed Louise Casey to a new role of Neighbourhood Crime and Justice Adviser based in the Home Office to help implement her proposals.
