Integrated Offender Management (IOM) brings a cross-agency response to the crime and reoffending threats faced by local communities. The most persistent and problematic offenders are identified and managed jointly by partner agencies working together. These include prolific burglars and also domestic abuse perpetrators. IOM helps to improve the quality of life in communities by: reducing the negative impact of crime and reoffending, reducing the number of people who become victims of crime, helping to improve the public’s confidence in the criminal justice system.
What we do:
YouTurn co-ordinates and manages the delivery of Bedfordshire IOM on behalf of the multi-agency partners. This includes:
- Co-ordinating operational delivery of IOM programmes.
- Providing facilities for operational delivery.
- Work with partner agencies such as MARAC and the Domestic Abuse Silver Group
- Performance and evaluation of the scheme.
- Strategy and continuing development of IOM.
What are the benefits of IOM?
YouTurn brings together staff and resources from over 20 different organisations including BeNCH CRC, National Probation Service, Police, The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Local Authorities. The work of YouTurn and IOM has resulted in significant reductions in re-offending across the county.
The IOM Team manage offenders who have committed a lot of crime and caused damage to communities. They overse rehabilitation work which is coupled with strict monitoring such as GPS tagging, drug testing and curfews.
We work intensively with Bedfordshire’s most persistent offenders to address the underlying causes of their criminality. If an offender did commit another crime, they would be swiftly caught and fast-tracked back to Court for sentencing.
