Annotation: This report presents the crime control strategy of the London borough of Hackney for the period of 1999-2002.
Abstract: The borough of Hackney has a population of 194,000; one-third are of ethnic minority groups; and almost one-quarter are aged 15 or below. In June 1998 the unemployment rate was 15.7 percent, the highest in London, and the unemployment rate for ethnic minorities was considerably higher. The Hackney Crime and Disorder Audit found that the crime levels in all categories of serious crime were high within the borough. The Hackney Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership was formed to begin to link the borough's renewal and regeneration activities with the fight against crime. The Crime and Disorder Reduction Strategy has been developed in close consultation with local people and is supported by locally based organizations that serve the community. Strategy priorities over the next 3 years include tackling "hotspot" crime and disorder, youth crime and disorder, drugs and alcohol misuse, street robbery, burglary, violent crimes (domestic violence and street violence), racial and non-racial harassment and intimidation, sex-related crimes, anti-social behavior and disorder reduction, business-related crime, and motor vehicle crime. This report details the objective and long-term and short-term targets for each of these priorities. Activities designed to meet each objective are described.
