Crest Advisory provides expert, independent advice to police and crime commissioners (PCCs), criminal justice agencies and the security sector.
Crest Advisory was the first specialist advice service set up to support police and crime commissioners. For the past year dozens of candidates have relied on us for policy expertise, political insight, delivery experience and communications support.
In addition to our work with PCCs, Crest also work for FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies in the United Kingdom and the United States, for high-profile individuals and for some of the most successful not-for-profit organisations on both sides of the Atlantic.
The key challenge for PCCs is to set the right goals and hold forces and partner organistions to account for achieving them. But establishing an approach to performance management that drives real improvement for the public is notoriously hard.
To meet this challenge, we have developed a flexible range of services to help PCCs make smarter decisions about what should get measured, and to establish mechanisms that strengthen governance and oversight.
Crest can help in three areas of communication vital to a PCC’s success: defining an effective strategy; developing messages that truly resonate with the media, the public, and decision makers; and, refining your skills as someone who can engage and connect with all audiences.
Whether the OPCC has a dedicated communications’ team or not, Crest can support your needs with these specialist services.
Crest supply the highest quality research and specialist insight to ensure PCCs and our other clients have access to expert, up- to-date information about the criminal justice system and about how to cut crime and reduce fear and disorder.
By partnering with this country’s leading police research institutes we are able to identify interventions that are evidence based and can be objectively assessed, free from political fad and fashion.
