Safer Stockport Partnership Plan 2018-21

The Safer Stockport Partnership has 4 Priority Themes set out in its 3 Year Plan:

  1. Public Safety and Protection
  2. Protecting Vulnerable People
  3. Serious and Organised Crime
  4. Transforming Justice

In addition to the four thematic priorities, the Partnership also has the following key Strategic Priorities:

  • Radicalisation and Extremism
  • Shared Intelligence

These priorities are linked to the wider priorities of partners and the GM Mayoral Police and Crime Plan 2018-21.

The Plan is central to the delivery of the Stockport Partnership’s 5-year Borough Plan, helping to create safe and resilient communities.  The Plan focuses on the people and places most at risk of community safety problems in line with the inclusive vision of the Borough Plan and is committed to developing place-based approaches to dealing with local issues working with communities and across organisations.

Safer Stockport Partnership Annual Report 2016-17

The Safer Stockport Partnership Annual Report 2016-17 sets out to tell the story of change for the Partnership in 2016/17.   This has been a transitional year for the Partnership with significant change in its structure as well as operational change.  The report provides some detail about developments in relation to the partnership governance structure and priorities.

It reviews progress against the performance framework used by the Partnership to monitor achievement of its 2016/17 priorities.  This work continues to evolve as the strategic direction and priorities of the partnership change.

Finally, the Report looks ahead to the planned work and context informing the development of future Partnership Priorities.   The local strategic assessment and GM Police and Crime Plan will be central to informing SSP strategy going forward, with a new three-year Plan due to be published in 2018.

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.
