Investing in Community Safety Partnerships to tackle local problems

Content from PFCC


Three and a half years ago, you asked us to crack down on anti-social behaviour.
We have reduced the number of recorded anti-social behaviour incidents by more than 8,000 (16 per cent).

Highlights include:

  • investing in council-led Community Safety Partnerships to tackle local problems
  • extra enforcement powers extended to 350 people from 40 organisations to crack down on ASB
  • making more offenders answerable to their victims through our Restorative Justice programme
  • providing the funding for more local policing, more community policing, more Town Centre Teams and more rural policing

We are delivering against our priority in our Police & Crime Plan to crack down on anti-social behaviour. Here, we speak to Suzanne Harris, our Community Safety and Reducing Reoffending Manager, to find out how we are investing in council-led Community Safety Partnerships to tackle local problems.

“We provide funding to all Community Safety Partnerships. With that funding, they are required to meet the priorities within the Police & Crime Plan, including to crack down on anti-social behaviour.”
