Community Safety Partnerships

What are community safety partnerships?

Community safety partnerships (CSPs) are made up of representatives from the police and police authority, the local council, and the fire, health and probation services (the 'responsible authorities').

Community safety partnerships were set up as statutory bodies under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

Working together

The responsible authorities work together to develop and implement strategies to protect their local communities from crime and to help people feel safe. They work out local approaches to deal with issues including antisocial behaviour, drug or alcohol misuse and re-offending.

They also work with others who have a key role, including community groups and registered local landlords.

There are six CSPs in Gloucestershire
