NPCC - Strategic Threat Risk Assessment 2023
Following on from the 'Safer Streets - Protect & Deter 2023' Conference presentation by Tina Wallace of Thames Valley Police titled 'Operation Vigilant' which focussed on VAWG, we thought to share this recent update from the National Police Chief's Council (NPCC)
From a CCTV perspective
“Where public space VAWG offending occurred, the most common locations were recorded as high density night-time economy venues or areas with high levels of deprivation.
Some forces identified that public space VAWG hotspots were most common in town centres or areas with high footfall. This presents policing with opportunities to work with partners such as local authorities and licensed venues to disrupt and prevent offending.”
It's safe to read into the above quoted text as meaning town and city centre CCTV Operations centres.
