Community Safety Partnership
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 placed a legal responsibility on certain public bodies and other agencies to work together to reduce crime, disorder and the fear of crime locally, in order to improve quality of life and to create a safer living and working environment. The CSP is a statutory body under the Act.
Members of the Community Safety Partnership include representatives from statutory and voluntary organisations as well as from the business sector. The Partnership Steering Group includes representatives from:
- Devon and Cornwall Police
- Devon County Council
- Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service
- Dorset, Devon and Cornwall Probation
- East Devon District Council
- Mid Devon District Council
- Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group
The Community Safety Partnership meets quarterly to monitor and oversee the work being delivered by partners against priorities set. This is in addition to the Local Action Groups (East Devon only) and the Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence & Abuse Forum covering Exeter, East & Mid Devon. We work closely with agencies across Devon and the peninsula and are part of the Safer Devon Partnership.
