What is a Strategic Assessment? The 2014-15 Strategic Intelligence Assessment is a statutory document produced on a yearly basis.

It is a Partnership assessment and includes analysis of data and expert information from a number of sources: Police London Ambulance Service Richmond Council London Fire Brigade NHS Richmond Achieving for Children London Probation Service - Community Rehabilitation Company - National Probation Service
