WINNER: Best Use of Data at the Laria Awards

Last updated by charlotte.lang@essex.gov.uk on Wednesday, July 25, 2018

The MACE process was praised for "Using existing data, in a joined up way across organisations, rather than silos to develop a local view of what is happening in an area and displaying it in a simple, engaging, interactive and dynamic way."

Successes include:

  • Identification of vulnerable locations. The dynamic maps reflects where schools, care home, semi-independent accommodation, B&Bs, Hotels etc. locations are. We can map out our transport networks, bus stations, etc. and through this over time understand better how such facilities may play a role in increasing vulnerability and/or risk.
  • Targeting disruption and enforcement activities. It seeks to deliver information regarding disruption and enforcement; for example, it will detail the location of child abduction warning notices and closure notices.
  • Evaluating proactive work carried out by the partnership. The mapping facility seeks to answer queries as well as pose questions to the group of core members that attend MACE 2, who are predominantly strategic leads across the partnership. It seeks to identify areas for early prevention activities and raising awareness
