The Thames Valley Violence Reduction Unit (TVVRU) requires a multi-agency approach across policing, local authorities, prisons and probation and the voluntary and community sectors. The unit supports and coordinates the local response to serious violence and embeds a public health approach in tackling the causes of violence through early intervention and prevention.

The work of the unit is underpinned by data-led and evidence-based approaches, ensuring agencies are aware of where serious violence occurs, risk and causation factors and what preventative measures could be implemented. A priority for the team is the development of the first multi-agency data-sharing and analytical platform.

Join techUK for a virtual briefing with the Director of the TVVRU, Superintendent Stan Gilmour and Serena Cuthbert, Business Intelligence and Insight Analyst at Buckhinghamshire Council to hear about:

  • How a multi-agency / place based approach has overcome collaborative information sharing challenges facing public, private and community sectors.
  • How TVVRU have overcome the challenges of data-sharing and interoperability across the police, government departments and partner agencies.
  • How the data is being researched and applied – ethically, and through evidence based intervention and prevention in tackling serious violence.
  • How TVVRU have shared learnings and best-practice with other units and agencies
  • How industry can help in current and future challenges.

Agenda to be confirmed.
