Annual PREVENT Report

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Cabinet considered the annual PREVENT report from the Director of Adults’

Health and Care.


With reference to the report it was explained that the County Council’s role in PREVENT was to work in the pre-criminal space, to try to avert radicalisation. Recent world events had led to increased referrals both nationally and in Hampshire and the Hampshire response had been assessed as meeting or exceeding requirements. It was recognised that the high volume of referrals was partially due to the scale of the County, but also reflective of the pro-active approach to raising awareness. Within the County Council, e-learning on the PREVENT responsibilities had been undertaken by almost all staff. Work to reduce the likelihood of a terror attack in Hampshire was also discussed and it was noted that this was based on: a number of specific duties, on collaboration with partners, on an awareness of the way in which organised crime can support ideological extremism and on positive messaging.


The recommendations in the report were considered and agreed. A decision record is attached to these minutes.
