​Early intervention is a key area of business that Devon & Cornwall and Dorset police are exploring as part of the evidence based policing being led through the Alliance’s Prevention Department.

We know early intervention is already taking place within policing and with partners. The work which will be undertaken by the Prevention Department will be based on theories such as the Adverse Child Experience, enabling us to identify and safeguard the most vulnerable within our communities and divert them from the Criminal Justice System or from becoming victims. This work will focus on strong and critical partnership working across both public and private sectors.
