Most communities seek to reduce crime in their locality. To direct their resources most effectively, they need to gain an understanding of local offenders, types of offending and the services available to address them. Rarely, however, is this understanding reached through the concrete evidence which can be gained by investing in detailed research. Broadland Council in the UK is one of 7 district bodies responsible for local governance in the rural Eastern county of Norfolk. In 2005, it resolved to introduce a programme named 'Stairway', to help its offenders, particularly the young, to move out of crime.
