star this property answer text <p>The Serious Crime Act 2015 introduced a new domestic abuse offence of coercive or controlling behaviour in intimate and familial relationships. The statutory guidance underpinning the offence is clear that financial abuse, such as controlling the victim’s finances, is a type of behaviour that can form part of a purposeful pattern of behaviour over time to exert power, control or coercion over another person.</p><p>In 2017-18 960 offences of coercive or controlling behaviour have been charged and reached a first hearing, more than three times the volume in the previous year. This shows that the offence is having an impact and sends a strong message that coercive or controlling behaviour will not be tolerated.</p><p>On 21 January we published our landmark draft Domestic Abuse Bill and consultation response which will transform the cross-Government response to this devastating crime. The draft Bill includes provisions for a statutory definition of domestic abuse, including economic abuse. Replacing ‘financial’ with ‘economic’ acknowledges how broad this form of abuse is and how many aspects of a victim’s life it can affect, such as limiting their access to fundamental resources such as money, food, transport, employment and housing. This will raise awareness of the issue of economic abuse and also enable frontline professionals and the criminal justice system to better understand, recognise and tackle it, so that victims can be supported to achieve the economic stability that they need.</p><p>The draft Bill is underpinned by a comprehensive package of non-legislative action which we have set out in our consultation response, including a commitment to review the effectiveness of the coercive or controlling behaviour offence to ensure it is fit for purpose and that it adequately protects victims from abuse. In addition, we have committed to update the statutory guidance and CPS legal guidance on the offence to include economic abuse and provide guidance on how this form of abuse can manifest itself as part of a pattern of coercive control</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government understands that police demand is changing and becoming increasingly complex. That is why we have provided a strong and comprehensive funding settlement for the police that will increase funding by £970million compared to 2018/19, including precept, pensions funding and national investment.</p><p>In relation to tackling violent crime, our Serious Violence Strategy, published in April 2018, is supported by £40million over 2 years to deliver initiatives that tackle serious violence, this includes: an Early Intervention Youth Fund of £22 million which is already supporting 29 projects in England and Wales. Over £17 million has already been allocated to projects delivering interventions to young people at risk of criminal involvement, gang exploitation and county lines.</p><p>Other funding we have made available to tackle serious violence includes: £3.6million to set up a National County Lines Co-ordination Centre; a Community Fund that provided £1.5 million this year to support 68 projects; and £1.4m to support a new national police capability to tackle gang related activity on social media.</p><p>Police funding continues to be a priority for the Home Secretary and we are working closely with the police sector to better understand the demand landscape.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The chances of being a victim of crime, on the railways or elsewhere, remain extremely low. However, the Government is very concerned about increases in knife crime and its impact on victims, families and communities. The action we are taking is set out in our Serious Violence Strategy and includes new legislation in the Offensive Weapons Bill and continuing police action under Operation Sceptre. The British Transport Police also participate in Operation Sceptre and we expect the next national week of action to take place in March 2019.</p><p>More widely, we have also been supporting the #knifefree media campaign to raise awareness of the consequences of knife crime and discourage young people from carrying knives more generally. The Serious Violence Strategy includes a strong focus on prevention and early intervention to stop young people being drawn in to knife crime. Our Early Intervention Youth Fund of £22 million is already supporting 29 projects in England and Wales. Over £17 million has already been allocated to projects delivering interventions to young people at risk of criminal involvement, gang exploitation and county lines.</p><p>We are supporting 68 small community projects this year through the anti-knife crime Community Fund. In addition, we have extended our support for Redthread in hospital emergency departments to introduce its “teachable moment” youth violence intervention work to hospi-tals in Birmingham and Nottingham.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Serious and organised crime affects more of us, more often, than any other national security threat, persistently eroding our economy and our communities. It costs the UK at least £37 billion every year.</p><p>The newly updated Serious and Organised Crime Strategy, published on 1st November 2018, sets out how the Government will mobilise the full force of the state and align the collective efforts of key partners from the public, private and voluntary sectors to tackle serious and organised crime together in one single approach.</p><p>The cross-system approach is aligned to the four strategy objectives:</p><p>(i) Relentless disruption and targeted action against the highest harm serious and organised criminals and networks affecting the UK</p><p>(ii) Building the highest levels of defence and resilience in vulnera-ble people, communities, businesses and systems</p><p>(iii) Stopping the problem at source, identifying and supporting those at risk of engaging in criminality</p><p>(iv) Establishing a single, whole-system response, aligning the ef-forts of all those involved in responding to serious and organised crime as one, cohesive system.</p><p>The Government has already made some early progress in implementing the Serious and Organised Crime Strategy. For example, we have established new community coordinators in five pilot areas to promote community resilience and divert people away from serious and organised crime. We have also recruited a new cross-government overseas policy specialists network to complement existing international law enforcement operational work</p><p>The Government is determined to prevent serious and organised crime, defend against it, track down perpetrators and bring them to justice.
