Partnering in community safety

Information on partnership plans and local engagement meetings

The Community Safety Partnership (CSP)

The Community Safety Partnership is a multi-agency forum, which brings together responsible authorities as set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and the Police Reform Act 2002.

These laws placed a statutory requirement to work together to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.


These organisations are committed to:

  • working together to make the district a safe place to work, live and enjoy
  • reducing anti-social behaviour and crime and disorder; and
  • building stronger communities

Through producing a yearly strategic assessment and consultation with communities and partners a key number of priorities are set by the Community Safety Partnership each year, and produces the Community Safety Plan 2021-2024 (8.23MB)

Local engagement meetings

Due to COVID-19 these meetings  for residents to share ideas and help identify priorities for tackling crime and anti-social behaviour in their local communities are being held virtually  by representatives of the Community Safety Partnership . Details of the meetings will be shared on Twitter.
