Questions wanted for #NYPscrutiny meeting focusing on reoffending

Julia Mulligan, the elected Police and Crime Commissioner is inviting the public to ask questions via Twitter for the next meeting of the monthly police accountability meeting. To be held on Tuesday 23 January at 13:30, and webcast LIVE, the Commissioner is focusing on reoffending.

Viewers of the live webcast can ask the Board questions via Twitter during the meeting, or ask them beforehand, by using #NYPscrutiny.

Meeting overview

This month’s meeting focuses on managing offenders but will hear an update on 101, policing at Kirby Misperton and much much more.

Reoffending  
When offenders are convicted, many will spend time in prison before being released back to the community, whereas others will serve community based sentences.

A large group of offenders the police work with are registered sex offenders, who remain subject to restrictions even after they have been released from prison.  The restrictions are in place to ensure that any potential risks are identified and closely managed.

For many offenders, re-offending can be reduced by tackling the cause for offending. Some offences may for example be driven by an addiction of some kind, which may also be linked to the environment in which the offender lives. By working with other agencies to reduce the root causes of offending it is possible to reduce the chances of re-offending.
