Community Safety Partnership (CSP)
Community safety is a high public priority, and can affect the quality of life for individuals and communities.
Tackling community safety depends on organisations and services working together with the police.
The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) has representatives from five statutory partners:
- Central Bedfordshire Council
- Bedfordshire Police
- Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group
- BeNCH / Community Rehabilitation Company
- Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service
Community safety priorities 2016-2019
The Community Safety Partnership consults with partners, stakeholders and communities to assess risks and threats every year.
The partnership currently has three priorities:
- protecting the vulnerable – with a focus on modern day slavery, trafficking, Prevent and child sexual exploitation
- dealing with domestic abuse – with a focus on those from minority groups, aged under 18 years and 'medium risk' victims
- protecting our communities – with a focus on environmental anti-social behaviour, nuisance motorcycles and street drinking
It also has also two emerging issues which are:
- sexual abuse
- county lines
We're required to produce a partnership strategy that sets out:
- what we will deliver
- how performance will be measured
- how we will communicate and consult with local people
