Coming up on Tuesday 13 July, our Case Study Webinar focuses on two examples of local authorities and their responses into service, financial and capacity pressures.
The expectations of citizens will continue to present challenges for public protection services. In an ever-changing world, relying on how it was done in the past is no guarantee of success in the future. Against the backdrop of spiralling demand, capacity pressures, and tight budgets, it is vital that services are configured appropriately and regularly reviewed to ensure that the most appropriate delivery arrangements are in place and that the approach to securing compliance is the right fit.
In the case of Bristol City Council, this involved a complete redesign of their Neighbourhood Enforcement Team, greater reliance on technology and the up-skilling of officers. Blackpool Council had to cope with a surge in domestic noise complaints and related anti-social behaviour and made a conscious decision to reprioritise the selection of enforcement interventions.
