Newham Integrated Offender Management (IOM)

Newham Integrated Offender Management (IOM) scheme brings a multiple-agency response to crime and re-offending threats faced by residents in the borough.

IOM is endorsed by the Ministry of Justice and Prison / Probation Service as a key effective model to reduce crime and reoffending.

IOM is a focussed and coordinated multi-agency partnership approach that identifies, oversees, supervises, manages and positively impacts the criminal activity of the most persistent offenders who also pose a significant risk of violent offending .

Newham IOM works within The London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) Managing Persistent, Violent Offenders Operating Framework. This Operating Framework has been developed in consultation with key partner agencies.

Key Aims of the IOM Framework

  • Reduce the disproportionately high level of reoffending committed by persistent, violent offenders
  • Reduce the number of victims of crime in London and  the impact on London communities
  • Reduce the high financial and social costs of this reoffending;
  • To promote a more consistent focus across London on persistent offenders, particularly those who also pose a significant risk of violent reoffending;
  • To maintain a focus in priority acquisitive offences, particularly robbery and burglary
  • To demonstrate the impact and effectiveness of IOM and generate an evidence base for what works well in this area

How the partnership works

  • Monthly Panel meetings to discuss management of cases
  • Joint Home visits undertaken
  • All partners tackling offenders together - by working together and sharing information to reduce re-offending
  • Delivering a local response to local problems
  • Offenders facing their responsibility or facing the consequences
  • Making better use of existing programmes and governance
  • The goal is to achieve long-term desistance from crime
