Dare to Share
AIM: A ‘dare to share’ culture across all agencies, public or private, voluntary or community, who deal with vulnerable young people and adults.
Thames Valley Police
- The Protecting Vulnerable People Unit are leading on a pilot scheme in Aylesbury to develop links between Local Policing Area (LPA) teams and Public Protection Teams. This will utilise local knowledge on Registered Sex Offenders to help prevent offending behaviour and appropriately increase local officer knowledge on dangerous offenders living in their area.
- The Local Policing Area led multi-agency tasking and co-ordination (MATAC) process is being implemented in Oxfordshire and then across the force, focusing on a greater sharing of information between police and partners to target those causing the most harm.
- Local Policing Areas are working with partners such as Benjamin UK (a provider of therapeutic residential care for 12 – 18 year olds) to deliver enhanced support for vulnerable children by improved information sharing agreements.
