Friday, 15 March 2002 00:00 Loxley, C. et al. Sport and Community Safety

Splash 2000: This report is an evaluation of six of these schemes. It examines the process involved in setting up and running such schemes, as well as an indication of the impact they had on crime and disorder in the areas in which they operated.

This report is procuced by the Policing and Reducing Crime Unit. The PRCU is based in the Research, Development and Statistics (RDS) Directorate of the Home Office. The Unit carries out and commissions social and management science research on policing and crime reduction, to support Home Office aims and develop evidence-based policy and practice.

Editor's comments - [  The authors report on the hard work and dedication of the project co-ordinators who all managed to deliver a full programme of events within a tight timescale. Many positive aspects of the Splash schemes are highlighted, as well as a number of ways in which these programmes could be improved in future.

Although the assessment of impact was based on just three projects, the findings suggest that areas with little existing youth provision in the summer may achieve a reduction in crime and disorder. This contrasts with areas with existing youth provision where the additional Splash funding does not appear to have had an impact on crime and disorder above and beyond that already achieved by these projects.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
