When MARAC referrals are received the Police Detective Sergeant (DS) will allocate each case to a Detective Constable (DC) to ensure that appropriate safeguarding is in place, including alerts on addresses, safety planning advice, referral to community safety team where appropriate and any other relevant safeguarding actions to ensure that the victim is safe.
Once the MARAC agenda has been prepared and distributed the MARAC Co-ordinators prepare profiles on all individuals who are to be discussed in MARAC and send to the DS. The DS then prepares a summary to present to the MARAC attendees on each case.
The DS shares information in MARAC on both the victim and perpetrator including details of calls for service, PNC information of previous offending behaviour, safeguarding measures put in place to protect the victim, details of any strategy meetings arranged and the outcome of these, any bails conditions put in place to protect the victim and any court appearances in relation to offences, crimes and the outcome of these. If the referral is a Police referral the DS shares the log/incident information.
Post MARAC the Police DS will update the officer in charge with the information shared by agencies attending MARAC ensuring they are aware of actions set and that these Police actions are completed to address the risks and needs of the victim, children and perpetrator in each case.
