Statutory Responsibilities

The 1998 Crime and Disorder Act and other subsequent legislation places a number of legal duties on Community Safety Partnerships to:

  • promote collaborative partnership working and information sharing with responsible authorities
  • commission and implement a strategic assessment and partnership plan for the reduction of crime and disorder in the area
  • reduce re-offending
  • commission and approve Domestic Homicide Reviews

We also co-ordinate Prevent activity (Section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act).
