Safer Stockport Partnership Plan 2016-17

Stockport remains one of the safest places in the UK in which to live and work. The ‘Safer Stockport Partnership’ (SSP) was established in 1998 as Stockport’s statutory Community Safety Partnership. It is jointly chaired by Stockport Council and Greater Manchester Police (GMP), and includes a range of local public service and voluntary organisations who work together to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour, re-offending and substance misuse.

The priorities for the Safer Stockport Partnership and how they will be delivered are set out in its Strategic Plan for 2016/17. These are linked to the wider priorities of the partners within the SSP including Stockport Council, GMP and the GM Police and Crime Commissioner.

The four key themes within the plan are;

  • Protecting Vulnerable People
  • Public Safety and Protection
  • Serious and Organised Crime
  • Transforming Justice

Regular reports are produced for the Partnership Board to monitor progress in delivering these priorities at a local level and across the borough. Further research is being undertaken to identify key crime trends and threats for different areas across Stockport. This will inform the next Plan, which will also reflect the priorities of the new GM Mayor after May 2017.
