OSCP produce many documents, from bi-annual newsletters to annual reports. Below are some of our recent documents: 

Oxford Domestic Homicide Review Report 2014

Tim Sadler, Chair of the Oxford Safer Communities Partnership says: “Today the Oxford Safer Communities Partnership publishes a Domestic Homicide Review (DHR), following the death of a local woman in August 2012.  

“The case involved the tragic death of a vulnerable woman who was killed by her daughter.  “The daughter pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility and was detained in a secure mental health hospital. She sadly passed away from natural causes in June this year.   

“The purpose of the DHR is to establish what lessons agencies can learn to improve their service response and reduce the likelihood of these tragic circumstances happening again.   “The Panel found that the homicide could not have been predicted but could have been prevented and makes 11 key recommendations. The Review has been quality assured by the Home Office who have commended the report for its thoroughness.“

Oxford City Council's Community Safety Talkback Survey 2013

Talkback (Oxford's Citizens' Panel) was first established in 1997 and consists of approximately 1,000 residents (aged 16+) who are largely representative of the demographics of the population of Oxford.

The aim of Talkback is to find out the opinions of Oxford residents on a range of services and issues. The report below compares the results of the 2013 Community Safety Talkback survey with the results of previous surveys, to highlight trends in residents' views about crime and antisocial behaviour in Oxford.
