Humberside Police know that the vast majority of crime in a community is carried out by a small number of prolific offenders. To deal with this issue police and multi-agency partners work together to try and ensure they don’t re-offend through various measures and interventions
Integrated Offender Management (IOM) is one such measure which brings together organisations from the public, private and voluntary/community sector including the police and probation service to tackle prolific offenders through intensive programmes combining rehabilitation and enforcement.
The Police Officers work with offenders at high risk of re-offending to support changes in offender behaviour and remove issues which influence offending. That support can range from assistance in finding accommodation, obtaining training and employment, right through to anger management and treatment for substance misuse. If offenders commit further crimes, they will be swiftly caught and brought to justice.
