The position we have available is for one fixed term role until 31 March 2021. This is a national role so working from London, working from home and working from Norfolk are all options which can be discussed at interview stage.
The Vulnerability Knowledge and Practice Programme (VKPP) :
Policing has seen prolonged significant increases in demand associated with protecting vulnerable persons. It is one of policing’s highest threat, harm and risk areas.
Nationally however responses have traditionally been fragmented with significant focus on single threat strands. At a local level demand and budgetary pressures have meant this area of policing is no longer the preserve of the specialist.
The associated evidence base both in terms of understanding how the threat strands intertwine and what works with regards to policing intervention has struggled to keep up.
The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) has sought to begin to address this challenge through the Violence and Public Protection (VPP) portfolio led by Chief Constable Simon Bailey (QPM).
A National Vulnerability Action Plan (NVAP) has been created which consolidates relevant actions featuring across multiple single strand threat areas plans.
Funding has also recently been secured from the Police Transformation Fund (PTF) up until March 2021 to establish a national policing Vulnerability Knowledge and Practice Programme (VKPP).
Purpose, role and function of VKPP :
These will in turn be subject to independent evaluation through an independent commissioning process led by the college of policing utilising a £1.
5m dedicated fund. Prioritisation will be given to early intervention and prevention interventions which seek to directly address multiple vulnerabilities or those that may have wider applicability / potential to do so.
Specifically this will seek to identify any opportunities to de conflict and improve current collections and enable improved analysis / collective understanding of the threat.
