The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) brings together a number of agencies and organisations concerned with tackling and reducing crime and antisocial behaviour. Community Safety Partnerships were set up under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. Some organisations, like the District Council and the Police, are statutory members, but voluntary groups and businesses are also represented and play an important role.
Our key role is to understand the kind of community safety issues East Cambridgeshire is experiencing; decide which of these are the most important to deal with; and then decide what actions we can take collectively, adding value to the day-to-day work undertaken by our individual agencies and organisations. We detail these actions in our Community Safety Plan which we update each year.
Further information on Community Safety Partnerships can be found on the GOV.uk website - Appendix 4: community safety partnerships.
