Minister for Crime, Policing and the Fire Service, Kit Malthouse MP: "The best way to fight crime is to stop it happening in the first place. It is therefore my pleasure to contribute to this publication which showcases the vital leadership role PCCs play in galvanising the local response to preventing crime and serious violence, identifying vulnerability in their communities, and targeting support to prevent crime from happening."
Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Edward Argar MP: “The importance and unique nature of PCCs’ role, their passion for, understanding of, and dedication to their local areas and the people that live there are key to helping deliver our vision for victims. As Victims Minister I have been fortunate to have witnessed first-hand some of the fantastic and pioneering work being delivered by PCCs.”
Minister for Policing and the Fire Service (2017-19), Nick Hurd MP: "As a Government we have been working closely with police forces across the country and continue to provide support to help them tackle the rise in serious violence. I welcome this publication which shows how the PCCs are working to improve their communities.”
Earlier this month, the PCC and partners launched the new Violence Reduction Unit. The @WestMidsVRU has Â£4 million to expand projects such as youth workers in A&E, helping to address the root causes of crime and directing young people away from criminality #PCCsMakingADifference. pic.twitter.com/4r2jRp7L1r
