Integrated Offender Management in Warwickshire Partners working together to reduce reoffending
Warwickshire’s Strategic Vision Warwickshire Integrated Offender Management scheme will further develop a clear and overarching framework to support all local Partners in the effective and efficient management of Offenders with an aim of reducing offending in Warwickshire. Partners will work together to expand IOM and specifically the Offender cohorts to encompass those groups that are most problematic within the community. The scheme will respond to local concerns which affect public confidence and provide an integrated approach to harm reduction. The strategic and tactical aims of the scheme in Warwickshire will respond positively to the challenges set by harm causers and the hurdles which lay ahead for agencies in the future. We will as Partners explore better ways to work together in order to maximise impact, reduce duplication and take steps to broaden the schemes reach in- line with changes to the national landscape. We will seek to do this by better engaging Partners in achieving effective and appropriate interventions to reduce offending in accordance with the 7 pathways to reduced offending principles.
What we are trying to achieve The five Principles We Work To… 1.All partners tackling offenders together 2.Delivering a local response to local problems 3.Making Offenders facing their responsibility or facing the consequences 4.Making better use of existing programmes and governance 5.All offenders at high risk of causing serious harm and/or re-offending are 'in scope' I ntensity of management relates directly to severity of risk, irrespective of position within the criminal justice system or whether statutory or non-statutory.
Priority Intervention Increased supervision Increased contact & understanding Increased engagement with agencies Enhanced enforcement Priority service through CJS þro-social modelling IOM intervention plan according to need
Seven Pathways to Reducing Reoffending Rehabilitation of Offenders
Pathways PATHWAY 1 : Accommodation Having somewhere to live and appropriate support helps offenders live more stable lives and to access support. This pathway seeks to source suitable accommodation and increase the Offenders transition from offender to civilian. PATHWAY 2 : Education, Training and Employment Offenders often do not have the basic skills necessary to find and keep a job. PATHWAY 3 : Health People within the criminal justice system often have problems gaining access to health and social care. PATHWAY 4 : Drugs and Alcohol Substance misuse is strongly associated with offending, with one survey showing around two thirds of arrestees testing positive for drugs. PATHWAY 6 : Children and Families Offenders’ families can be affected by the offender’s behaviour and punishment, but can also be a source of support and stability. PATHWAY 7 : Attitudes, Thinking and Behaviour This pathway seeks to improve the Offender’s responses to challenges and increase pro-social behaviour
