14 Police and Crime Standards Directorate Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships London Scrutiny Network – 23 rd April 2008 Kathy Robinson More local flexibility in PSAs Measuring local satisfaction explicitly Removed perverse incentive on offences brought to justice Stronger focus on more serious crimes And those below certain floor for key acquisitive crimes LAAs an opportunity to agree priorities at the outset Targets

16 Police and Crime Standards Directorate Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships London Scrutiny Network – 23 rd April 2008 Kathy Robinson Overview of APACS vision and aims Simplification of HO arrangements: a single framework to assess the key services delivered by the police working alone or in partnership. Alignment with related frameworks of other government departments and non-departmental public bodies, integrated across wider arrangements to manage and support performance. Improved quality and range of performance indicators reflecting (e.g.) PSAs / other priorities, relative seriousness, VfM and equality. Fewer performance indicators and targets with more shared indicators and targets between delivery partners. Better balance of accountability with more space for local flexibility and a reduced demand for data by central government. Deliver clear, consistent and timely messages to the public and to providers to promote visibility, accountability and responsiveness.
