The recent Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Conference – Delivering through Partnerships – shone the spotlight on the breadth of partnership work making communities safer.

A focus on gangs and vulnerability, community safety and diversionary programmes provided hard-hitting insight for the more than 200 delegates attending.

The PFCC for Essex, Roger Hirst, told emergency service personnel, MPs and representatives from local authorities, town and parish councils, health, education, voluntary, the business sector and community organisations that by working together on intervention programmes, they are making a difference.

Exhibition stands, and an array of lightning talks introduced a number of partnership interventions taking place; The Essex Centre for Data Analytics; The Horizon Project by Phoenix Futures; Challenging Myths / Changing Attitudes in Thurrock; Street, Rail, School Pastors; Sensory Services; and Safe, Well and Secure by Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.

Delegates had the opportunity to take part in a programme of workshops, including a Designing Out Crime session – delivered in partnership by Essex Police and Essex Partners as part of the Essex Communities programme. Delegates were challenged to take a whole system view to the decisions made as part of the planning process now, that would reduce crime for future generations.
