Adopt a victim centered approach to crime management

It is essential that police processes for investigation and crime management are proactive, clear and transparent. Without this, citizens can lose confidence in policing services and many crimes may go unreported. Public confidence in the police can often hinge on the way crimes are investigated and not simply the result of investigations.

An effective crime reporting, recording, investigation and monitoring process will change the style of policing to a victim-centered approach to crime management. This will not only enable the police to be more effective in fighting and managing crime, but could also lead to the a better image, reputation and more public confidence in the police force.
