Problem Solving has become a key part of policing and community safety. The concept is based upon a foundation of collaboration between key agencies, so that each one can use its areas of expertise to focus on a particular issue locally, be it persistent offending and/or anti-social behaviour. Ideally, these courses should be delivered locally to police, local authority departments and other key agencies, so that they can work together on current problems during their learning experience.
