Police, Crime and Victims' Plan

Police, Crime and Victims' Plan 2018-2021


The Police Crime and Victims Plan sets out the PCVC’s Vision, the outcomes they wish to achieve, along with twelve key priorities which will be the focus over the life of the plan.   

The plan builds on the foundations of the previous plan, and once again emphasises the role of the PCVC in holding the Constabulary to account.  

The Plan sets out the PCVC's  vision, “County Durham and Darlington are areas where all communities are safe, victims and vulnerable people feel supported, crime and reoffending are low, and people have confidence in policing and the criminal justice system’.  

The plan is a refreshed version of the previous plan. It introduces four ‘outcomes’, replacing the three ‘aims’ in the previous plan.

  •  Communities are safe and crime is reduced
  • Victims and the vulnerable feel supported
  • Reoffending is reduced and rehabilitation is improved
  • People have confidence in the police and the criminal justice system

This change emphasises the importance of delivery, in partnership.  It also takes the objectives of the Local Criminal Justice Partnership (LCJP) Plan, and the action plans of the two Community Safety Partnerships and associates them with the new outcomes of the Plan. The new plan therefore represents real co-delivery by a wide partnership of organisations. 

Putting victims first remains the golden thread of the plan, with a stronger emphasis on reducing re-offending.

The PCVC publishes a user-friendly Public Performance Report, four times a year, you can access it on the Performance page.
