Community Safety Partnerships (CSP) were set up as statutory bodies under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
Bolsover Community Safety Partnership is a multi-agency partnership working together to tackle crime and disorder in the district and is made up of the following organisations (responsible authorities):
- Bolsover District Council
- Derbyshire Police
- Derbyshire County Council
- Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service
- Derbyshire Probation Trust
- NHS Hardwick CCG
- NHS North Derbyshire CCG
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 as well as Crime and disorder. They also work with others who have a key role, including community groups, schools and registered local landlords.
The CSP works to a Community Safety Partnership Plan 2017-2020 which is reviewed by the end of March on an annual basis.
We are aware that agencies cannot be effective by working alone and we need the support of the local communities in helping to identify problems and formulate appropriate solutions. Local communities also need to be involved in local crime prevention activities we undertake. For example, by taking up the crime prevention advice provided.
We have published our latest newsletter that features information on what the Community Safety Partnership has been doing, an update on the CSP Plan and some useful numbers. Please also find a copy of the Police and Crime Commissioner's Council Tax Budget Summary here for 2018-2019.
