The Lancashire Community Safety Partnership Analysis Team recently showed just how valuable the work of data analysts can be in reducing crime and harm in local communities, receiving international recognition at the recent IALEIA* international awards for excellence in analysis.
The team cleaned up at the 2017 awards for the following:
- Category 1A: Best team working at a local level (Lee Sculpher, Rebecca Eckersley, John Kneale and Russ Clark)
- Category 2: Award for individual achievement in analysis: Rebecca Eckersley for research and analysis of ASBRAC**
- Category 2: Award for individual achievement in analysis: Russ Clark for Optimal Forager – analysis and evaluation of burglary risk.
Scott Keay who leads the successful team said,
“This is an amazing achievement for one team to win three awards in one go! I am very proud of this international recognition and success”.
These awards are a result of continued support and funding from Lancashire Constabulary, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and Lancashire County Council: all three currently fund the CSP Analysis team as part of their responsibilities to improve community safety. The team and their work also supports all Local Authorities and communities and community safety partnerships of Lancashire.
