Framework for forces and policing partners to reduce crimes that can lead to homicide.
This homicide prevention framework brings together the best available evidence to support police forces to:
- analyse and understand their crime problems
- develop and implement effective interventions and tactics
- identify where partnership support is needed
It has been developed jointly with the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC) and His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) as part of the national homicide prevention strategy.
