Beating Crime, part three

Today the government has set out extra measures to tackle the drivers of crime, building on our Beating Crime Plan. 

  • The Beating Crime Plan sets out measures to cut crime and hold criminals accountable, but it is only right that we support offenders who wish to turn their back on crime and lead productive lives.
     
  • That is why the government has launched a scheme to break the cycle of reoffending, by providing temporary, basic accommodation to keep prison leavers off the streets, recruiting 1,000 ex-offenders into the Civil Service by 2023, and investing £80 million in drug rehabilitation. 
     
  • These measures will break the cycle of reoffending, drive down crime, and save thousands of law-abiding people from becoming victims.
