Who we are
The Humber VPP started work in summer 2022 and currently includes the Police and Crime Commissioner, Humberside Police, the four Humber Council authorities, Youth Offending Teams, the local NHS Integrated Care Board, the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities and the Probation Service.
“This is the start of a long-term project to tackle and prevent violent crime in our communities. The partnership will seek to identify the root causes of violence and adopt an approach to understanding the factors which lead people to commit violence, whether in the home or the community, and work with them to address their behaviour. It is important that we work to prevent violence from occurring at all, so educational programmes will be developed to engage with young people to steer them away from committing violent crime in the first place. I’m looking forward to seeing our first projects being commissioned and starting work in the near future.”
