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.

Newry, Mourne and Down PCSP must also operate a Policing Committee comprising of its elected members with the aim of improving community confidence in policing.
The Policing Committee will do this through monitoring local police performance against the targets in the Local Policing Plan and helping to ensure effective engagement with the police and the local community.
The PCSP has three main strategic objectives
- To successfully deliver the functions of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership.
This involves agreeing action plan for delivery, forming sub-groups, producing an action plan, updating members and the wider community on progress through various means such as press releases, Facebook and Twitter.
- To improve community safety by tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.
PCSP runs a number of different programmes in partnership to make Newry, Mourne and Down a safer place. These include:
- Community Safety Wardens
