This paper reviews crime and disorder audits published following the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act. It specifically examines the audits produced in the North-west and North-east of England, by means of a survey of the partnerships as well as an analysis of the content and design of the audit documents themselves. The primary aim of this exercise was to establish what was best practice and what elements were involved in obtaining this. In general, it has been found that last time round the whole process was an important learning experience, which is likely to require a number of changes not only in organisational matters but also in relation to data issues
