South West PCCs come together to tackle reoffending

The PCC joined regional colleagues to convene a new board aimed at reducing reoffending.

Martyn Underhill said: “The revolving door of crime – in which people leave prison only to go onto carry out further offences – affects future victims and  wider society.

“This is a complex problem which requires a joined-up approach and I am optimistic that the new board will bring together a wide group of agencies to find new regional and local ways of dealing with this issue.”
