About the programme

South Yorkshire Police has secured further funding from the Home Office to continue the Problem Solving Programme for another year, post March 2020, to build on its work to reduce demand by embedding a structured problem solving ethos and capability nationally.

Our programme, which will now be referred to as the Problem Solving and Crime Prevention programme, aims to achieve eleven key deliverables to assist in reducing demand and preventing crime.

All materials produced throughout the lifetime of the Programme (2017-2020) are also available to view on the Programme’s Knowledge Hub, here.
