Police Commissioner Adam Simmonds has launched a ‘nine-point plan’ to cut offending in Northamptonshire.
Mr Simmonds this week launched a paper about preventing crime, called “It is time to do things differently”.
He called for a “radical review” of how offenders are managed by probation, youth justice, health, local authorities, local employers and housing providers.
He also warned organisations and charities would only be commissioned to carry out police work if they can prove they produce results.
He said: “Scarce resources will be better concentrated on activities that demonstrably cut crime.
“I will support the Chief Constable in significantly strengthening the intelligence capabilities of the force.
“I also want to commission from the force new services to deliver world-class crime prevention solutions, providing high quality crime design and prevention advice to local people and business, to the force and to other local agencies.”
His nine-point plan includes tackling drugs, alcohol, stopping young people from committing crime and dealing on problem families. Talking about drugs, he warned drug eradication from the county “will take a generation to achieve, but I believe that if we all get involved and behind this campaign for drug eradication that it is achievable”.
