Youth Offending Team Manager

I’m Jim Pearson from the Essex Youth Offending Service, currently seconded into the VVU.  I have been working in criminal justice for more than 20 years and have specialised in serious violence and high risk crime throughout my career.  My motivation for being part of the VVU is to help to drive forward stronger links within agencies and communities to help prevent the harm caused by gangs and County Lines. Like other colleagues in the unit, I am passionate that prevention of future harm is the key to reducing the prevalence of serious youth violence in our communities.

Outside work, my main passion is Braintree Rugby Club where I am a coach, player and supporter. I also have two huskies who I enjoy taking for long runs.
