OUR HISTORY

In 2017, South Yorkshire Police was awarded £6.35 million of funding from the Home Office to deliver a national problem solving and demand reduction partnership working initiative over three years.

 

The programme of work helped to transform ways of working across the police by embedding problem solving as a core discipline.

 

As well as working with fellow forces, we worked in partnership with a number of others to deliver best practice solutions, which have been shared locally, regionally and nationally.

THE TEAM

We achieved all of our key deliverables from the Problem Solving & Demand Reduction programme...

1. Coordinate networking with supportive stakeholders

2. Identify all the databases and information sources that contain evidence based approaches and make them more operationally accessible

3. Reduce costs and effort by identifying effective tools and make them nationally available

4. Identify organisational good practice in problem solving and make it nationally available (e.g. training)

5. Develop a dynamic and operationally focused network of problem solving experts that include police and community safety practitioners

6. Increase the profile of problem solving by highlighting best practice and generating a reward system

7. Connect good practice in the UK with international good practice

8. Assist forces to identify additional opportunities for demand reduction

9. Identification of opportunities for partners to reduce demand on other partners

10. Identify the need for governmental interventions e.g. A&E figures

THE VISION

 “Create opportunities to reduce demand for police and partners by embedding a structured problem solving ethos and capability”
