A4 – Programme Officer – Out of Court Disposals Admin Team
This role will be a full-time post working office hours (with some flexibility) and based initially at Hertfordshire Constabulary Headquarters in Welwyn Garden City.
The OoCD Administration Unit is situated within the Witness Services Team but the line management structure is with the Safeguarding Command, Crime Reduction and Community Safety and aligned to the County Community Safety Unit that is based at Farnham House.
The successful applicant will either be trained on Athena or be required to complete the training to enable them to carry out the role. The role will have line management for the A3 post that is currently being recruited to this new unit.
This is an exciting opportunity to continue to develop and shape the Hertfordshire approach to the new two-tier out-of-court-disposal options that went live in the County on 1st October 2019. The aim of the new approach is to ensure that victims have a say in the response to their crime and that offenders are diverted through restorative, rehabilitative or reparative options to educate and support them thereby preventing future offending. At the heart of the 2-tier system is ‘problem-solving’ and the concept that by tackling ‘why’ something is happening we can prevent more crime, which means less victims.
This role will manage the administrative processes, support frontline officers, CCSU managers and others through effective referral processes, recording and data analysis to ensure that we can continue to develop the force approach. There will be an element of report writing and a need to brief staff when required and maintain contact with the NPCC business area. There is likely to be some training and presentations required of the post-holder.
