Policing & Community Safety Partnership
The overall purpose of the PCSP is to help make communities safer and to ensure that the voices of local people are heard on policing and community safety issues.
The aim is to empower communities to work in partnership to develop solutions that will help to tackle crime, the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.
The remit of the PCSP is to work in partnership to identify and co-ordinate the delivery of community safety projects that are innovative, reflect good practices and involve appropriate community groups and partners agencies.
Under Community Planning functions the PCSP is the Safety and Good Relations thematic delivery group for the district.
