Had a great meting with a sergeant from the Kirklees IOM team. Chris actually "gets it" which is always a good start and he brought a prolific offender (Nathan) to our office for interview, such is his desire to see Nathan move away from crime.
My point is that it is this police approach to policing which is most effective. The notion of a police officer wanting to help an offender is a very powerful platform with which to start with, and it is clear to see how the offender wants to please the officer in most cases like this. Having known Nathan from inside Armley Jail and witnessed his work ethic, we are delighted to work with the police in helping to give Nathan a crime free life, and in turn making our streets safer.
