This briefing focuses on how Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) can help to improve responses to a particular group of ‘revolving door’ offenders – those facing multiple and complex needs, including poor mental health, who come into repeated contact with the police and criminal justice system. There is significant scope for them to use their mandate to drive more effective partnership working in their area, bringing a range of strategic decision makers together to address some of the root causes of offending, and to improve responses to people that currently fall between gaps in the system. Across the country PCCs are starting to drive this change, working with their police forces and other local partners.
