The Reassuring the Public (RtP) programme co-ordinates a series of projects designed to reduce fear of crime and build confidence in Scotland's justice system.
Aims and Objectives
RtP consists of a series of projects and initiatives focusing on the factors that impact on fear and confidence including:
- perceptions of personal risk and vulnerability;
- personal experience of crime and contact with justice agencies;
- disruptive behaviour and inconsiderate neighbours;
- visible and accessible policing.
