The VRUs Year 4 approach aims to build on the successes to date, and continue to fight crime, prevent crime and improve lives, aligned to the overall priorities of the Police & Crime Plan. You can read more about our response to serious violence in our Response Strategy 2023-24 – this document outlines our work to date, the challenges ahead, and how we will work to overcome these.
We commission a wide range of intervention services – from working intensely with a vulnerable individual to supporting to the wider family to become more resilient.
