Met Police (Vulnerable people in the Night Time Economy)
Name: Central Licensing Team, Metropolitan Police Service
Project summary: A package relating to vulnerable people in the Night Time Economy (NTE) is being disseminated to the Licensed trade. The Package contains information around protecting vulnerable people (vulnerable due to alcohol, drugs, disabilities etc) from being harmed physically, or mentally, and also preventing crime by interventions from their associates and the NTE industry partners.
We are looking for a candidate to explore the effects of the package in the Night Time Economy and produce a dissertation of their findings.
Detailed summary: A package relating to Vulnerable people in the Night Time Economy (NTE) is being disseminated to the Licensed trade. The package highlights how interventions made by people where vulnerable persons are involved can have a positive effect on reducing crime in the NTE.
Research questions into the effects of the Welfare and Vulnerability Engagement (WAVE) programme might include:
Has there been any reduction in crime involving vulnerable persons?
What are the NTE partners' thoughts on the programme?
Has the programme had a positive impact on the NTE?
What’s the next step for the programme and where does it need to progress to?
Identify possible signage i.e (look after each other)/LOGO
Are statistics available as to how many Welfare Officers are employed/volunteering in licensed premises nationally?
Are there any records available for the amount of interventions made by Welfare Officers, and if so, why were the interventions required (intoxicated, aggressive, tired and emotional etc)?
The candidate will be invited to the first launch of the WAVE programme on 24th November 2017.
