Reference: R194

Objectives

The project is part of a rolling programme of initiatives to tackle crime and the fear of crime on public transport. Traditionally, CDRP's have rarely mentioned transport crime as an issue they should be addressing. The research would help to show how best to engage with CDRP's to raise the awareness of transport crime. Establishing the costs of public transport crime will help raise the awareness, and target partners and resources more effectively in the future. The project will be of particular interest to the transport industry, Home Office, the Police and other CDRP partners, all of whom will form part of the project steering group.

Description

Identify, measure and record how many CDRPs in England are addressing public transport crime and personal security issues in their 3rd round Crime & Disorder audits and strategies and how this number compares with the two earlier rounds of audits and strategies. [DfT's information on the first two rounds will be available to the successful tenderer.]

Identify, measure and record what ways CDRPs in England are addressing public transport crime and personal security issues in their 3rd Round Crime & Disorder audits and strategies.

Identify and evaluate the most effective ways for DfT and the transport sector to engage with CDRPs to raise their awareness of public transport crime issues.
