The Western Suffolk Community Safety Partnership has published its Partnership Plan. The Plan sets out how the partnership will deliver, over the next 12 months, against its strategic priorities as agreed through the Strategic Assessment process.
The major purpose of the plan is to identify priorities and develop work on prevention, intervention and enforcement that gives “added value” to the work already being carried our by our partners.
What is the Community Safety Partnership (CSP)?
The main objective of the CSP is to work in partnership to encourage crime reduction initiatives, in line with the priorities set annually in their CSP plan following a structured problem solving process. Further Government Community Safety Partnership information can be found here.
The partnership covers the four council areas of St Edmundsbury Borough Council and Forest Heath, Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Councils. Funding for the CSP in 2013/14 has been granted by the Police and Crime Commissioner and any funding application must meet the CSP priorities AND the objectives 3 and 4 of the Police and Crime Plan.

The Community Safety Partnership is committed to providing a service to communities and local citizens. The Partnership will promote diversity and equality issues where we work in partnership, or have influence with other bodies that are service providers/contractors and with other key organisations in the districts– with the overall aim of promoting the value and purpose of equality and diversity.
The Western Suffolk Community Safety Partnership is about addressing local Community Safety issues by working in partnership to maintain a safer environment for our community to live, work and enjoy.
