Integrated Offender Management - Pembrokeshire Cleddau Project
The Pembrokeshire Cleddau Project is an Integrated Offender Management (IOM) project which is a partnership involving Police, National Probation Service, Wales Community Rehabilitation Company, Youth Offending and Prevention Team, the Local Authority and many other agencies that offer clients support and encouragement to stay out of trouble. This partnership approach is reliant upon the participation of external agencies and the sharing of information between all those involved.
