Crime: Peterborough

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what funding was allocated to the prolific and priority offenders programme in Peterborough City Council area in each year since 2001; and if she will make a statement. (226065)

The Prolific and other Priority Offender programme was launched in 2004 to tackle those offenders in every area of England and Wales who commit most crime or whose offending causes most damage to their local communities. The programme involves effective partnership working between agencies. It does not receive direct, dedicated funding from the Government. The costs of the programme are met locally.
