To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they plan to meet Police and Crime Commissioners of the seven cities most affected by the recent outbreak of violent crime to discuss how best to tackle such crime; and if so, when.
Tackling serious violence is a top priority for the Government and it is clear we must continue to step up the response to stop this violence. The Serious Violence Strategy sets out the Government’s approach, which depends also on a multi-agency approach across several sectors and stresses the importance of early intervention to tackle the root causes.
Home Office Ministers have invited all Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales to a meeting on Tuesday 19 March to discuss what action is already being taken in each area and what more can be done in partnership to tackle serious violence. This builds on roundtable meeting with Police and Crime Commissioners on 5 November 2018.
