Priority and Other Prolific Offenders
It is estimated that around 10% of active offenders are responsible for about 50% of all crime. This hardened core of offenders are the Priority and Other Prolific Offenders who are causing the most harm to communities.
The Priority and Other Prolific Offenders Strategy tackles the problem with three complementary strands:
- Prevent and Deter. To stop people (overwhelmingly young people) engaging in offending behaviours and graduating into prolific offenders.
- Catch and Convict. Actively tackling those who are already prolific or other priority offenders.
- Rehabilitate and Resettle. Working with identified prolific offenders to stop their offending by offering a range of supportive interventions. Offenders will be offered the opportunity for rehabilitation or face a very swift return to the courts.
Local Community Safety Partnerships must identify those individuals who are:
- the most prolific offenders
- the most persistently anti-social in their behaviour
- the greatest threat to the safety and confidence of their communities.
