West Yorkshire Police IOM Strand Clarification

KR/GPG/4/1.0
Author: West Yorkshire Police

Strand Clarification

Potential cohorts 4 Types

  • PPO Statutory either Probation or YOS
  • PPO Non Statutory
  • IOM Statutory either Probation or YOS
  • IOM Non Statutory

 

DIP Clients who are part of the overall IOM cohort will fall into one of the above categories .

 

When an offender is remanded in custody or sentenced to a period of custody they should always be shown as R and R Strand.  The Lead Agency should be shown as the Prison Service. The Lead Agency and strand if appropriate should then be amended as and when the offender is released.

 

 

Statutory Managed offenders both PPO and IOM

1. Strand Ownership is determined by a number of factors. If an offender is statutorily managed, the lead agency will always either be Probation or the Youth Offending Service. This should be reflected as the Rehabilitation and Re-settlement strand  if the offender is engaging well in the view of the relevant Case Manager (Probation or YOS)

 

2. Some offenders who are statutorily managed are deemed to be within Catch and Control by virtue of the following:

 

  • Police Arrest and disposal
  • New Intelligence received (Police or Partners)
  • Non compliance with Legislative Appointments, e.g. DIP Required Assessments, Restriction on Bail (ROB) Drug Rehabilitation Requirement (DRR)

 

In paragraph 2 example the strand should change from R and R to C and C, BUT the Lead Agency i.e., Probation and YOS should remain the Lead Agency.

 

The agreed multi agency interventions plan will then be amended to reflect the strand status and the evidence base.  The relevant IT systems need to be updated by the Police in the case of Arrest and or notable Police Intelligence being received. In respect of non-compliance and relevant Agency intelligence, Mi Case should be updated by the Lead Agency.

 

3. Where an offender (adult or juvenile) is statutorily managed but displays negative attitudes and intermittent appointment attendance, the statutory case manager will need to decide if a more coercive approach in conjunction with the Police is required. This may be in addition to any ongoing interventions delivered by the Lead Agency or another service.  After discussion, if that is the agreed approach, then the offender should be moved from R and R into Prevent and Deter strand.   

 

In paragraph 3 example, the strand should change from R and R to P and D BUT the Lead Agency ie Probation and YOS should remain the Lead Agency.

 

The agreed Multi agency Interventions plan will then be amended to reflect the strand status and the evidence base.  The relevant IT systems need to be updated by the Police in the case of arrest and or relevant intelligence being received.  In respect of non-compliance, Mi Case should be updated by the Lead Agency.

 

 

4.  Where an adult offender on the DIP caseload is statutorily managed (can only be Probation), then examples 2 and 3 apply, with Probation remaining the lead agency despite the offender moving from R and R to C and C or P and D.

 

The agreed multi agency interventions plan will then be amended to reflect the strand status and the evidence base. The relevant IT systems need to be updated by the Police in the case of Arrest and or intelligence being received.  In respect of non compliance, Mi Case should be updated by the lead agency.

 

 

Non Statutory Managed PPO

5.  Where an adult offender is notstatutorily managed and is a PPO then the lead agency is Probation as per the recent West Yorkshire Probation undertaking if deemed to be in the R and R strand.  If in the C and C Strand or the P and D strand, the lead agency should be shown as the Police .

 

6.  Where a juvenile offender is not statutorily managed and is a PPO, then the lead agency should be the Police as currently YOS are working with statutory PPO’s

 

 

Non Statutory Managed IOM

7.  Where an adult offender is non statutory IOM offender, the decision as to which strand applies is made at the multi agency case conference in the usual way. If C and C or P and D applies, the Police should be shown as the lead agency.  If however, the offender is engaging well and is deemed to be in R and R then the lead agency should be shown as the service provider delivering the interventions.

 

8. Where a non statutory adult class A substance misuser  is on the DIP caseload, this should be shown as R and R strand and “DIP” shown as the lead agency.

 

9. Where negative attitudes and/or intermittent appointment attendance is displayed, the DIP case manager will need to decide if a more coercive approach in conjunction with the Police is required. This may be in addition to any ongoing interventions delivered by the lead agency or another service.   The lead will then remain as DIP for the P and D strand or the DIP Police if sufficient justification to move to the C and C strand.
