Haringey Partnership Problem Solving Group (PPSG)

Purpose and Function

  • To identify existing and emerging problems and priorities through timely information sharing between partners
  • To adopt a problem-solving and target hardening approaches utilising a task and finish style to deploy resources to resolve issues both in the short and long term
  • To oversee high profile partnership days/weeks of action, including seasonal activity, on the borough to impact on crime, ASB and confidence (through joint communications)
  • The PPSG will operate alongside the current Met Police Tactical Tasking and Co-Ordination Group (TTCG) process. Issues raised at one of these groups may also be raised at the other, if further support is required. This will be enabled through identified SPOCs (council and Police) attending both meetings
  • To link to other operational groups as appropriate, particularly where issues concern individuals (victims and/or perpetrators), such as the Gang Action Group (GAG) and Integrated Offender Management (IOM)

The PPSG reports for performance management/scrutiny purposes to the Community Safety Partnership Board (CSP). For more details on the board, visit the Community Safety Partnership page.
