PACT consultation process is a government initiative designed to bring together various bodies and organisations to discuss local issues that affect communities.

It also measured victimisation among migrant workers and collected some general information about respondents' that can be useful for partner agencies and the police.
442 migrants were asked questions about their settlement experience during their first three years in the UK. This will help the police and partner agencies to improve settlement for new migrants.
Amber Community Safety Programme
Amber Community Safety Programme is a partnership network where everyone works together to reduce crime and the fear of crime, and to create a safer place to live and work.
The best way is to put community in the core of the network and to operate in a framework to build productive partnerships and collaboration with statutory agencies and the other communities in order to find the best solutions to issues and concerns at the local level using a innovative problem solving approach. It is acknowledged that fighting crime is the responsibility of Police, however, the community has responsibility to help prevent and reduce crime and the opportunities for crime.
Experience shows that with Police, local authority, the business sector and the community working together, opportunities for crime can be reduced.
