Case Study: vulnerable victim

by Annabel Tate, Senior Tenancy Enforcement Officer, Brighton and Hove City Council

The Issue

An offender was being released from prison and my team had concerns that the offender would try to make contact with the victim, potentially affecting their safety.

The Approach

A PCSO made a note on E-CINS that the offender was due to be leaving prison within the next few days. We would not normally be privy to that information but because it was flagged on the Victim’s profile we were able to quickly contact the victim and hold a face to face meeting to assess the level of risk to them.

The Result

We contacted the victim and moved them to a place of safety within 24 hours and before the offender was released from prison.
