The strategy focuses on targeted policing to reduce offending and victimisation. (from the introduction) Prevention First will mean a raft of changes to the way we work with victims so they receive a better service and are less likely to become victims again. It will involve changes to the way we deploy staff so our workforce is more flexible and better placed to respond to what’s happening in our communities before it’s too late. It will also provide a framework for understanding and responding to issues at the root of crime so we are not always simply reacting to issues associated with individual cases." (from the website). Families are identified as a priority focus. " To support and protect vulnerable and dysfunctional families, lift the veil of secrecy around family violence, child abuse and expose familial organised crime groups we will: - Improve our response to women and children subjected to family violence by engaging more effectively internally: between Family Violence coordinators, Child Protection Teams and Pacific, Ethnic and Iwi liaison officers; - In partnership with Child, Youth and Family, respond to reports of child abuse and neglect in accordance with the agreed Child Protection Protocols; - Make better use of the intelligence gleaned from our engagement with Māori, Pacific and ethnic communities to target family violence and abuse within these communities; and - Target crime families."
