NHWN Strategic Plan ’15-20
Is of a caring, cohesive, resilient society that is founded upon trust & respect, where the prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour is understood & embedded within communities.
Is to enable communities to work together with other agencies to identify and meet the needs of their communities, to ensure that they are resilient and to help provide a protective safety net for those members who are vulnerable and at risk of harm.
To be credible, accountable, transparent, caring, realistic, inclusive, sustainable and independent.
Our priorities are…
Limit the opportunity for crime to occur through increased awareness & adoption of effective crime prevention measures & timely reporting of suspicious acts.
Identify & protect against current, new & emerging threats.
Effective use of resources
Develop effective partnerships & strategic links with key stakeholders to influence national policies.
Build appropriate, sustainable infrastructure.
Identify what works & for whom & share this with others.
Stronger & Safer Communities
Improve active citizenship, community safety & resilience through increased community participation, social action, neighbourliness & partnership working.
Reduce the opportunity for victimisation & the impact of crime or harm, especially to the vulnerable.
