Community Safety Partnership

Community Safety

The West Lancashire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is committed to multi-agency problem solving and delivering balanced and comprehensive solutions to tackle crime and disorder.

Every council in the country has its own CSP - which is made up from six responsible authorities. In West Lancashire this includes:

  • West Lancashire Borough Council
  • Lancashire County Council
  • Lancashire Fire and Rescue
  • Lancashire Constabulary
  • The Primary Care Trust
  • The Probation Trust
  • plus important contributions from other partner agencies

The CSP implemented a new set of priorities and targets for 2012/13. These focused on reducing re-offending, serious acquisitive crime and cross border criminality. Reducing the types of anti-social behaviour prevalent in West Lancs was also prioritised, including anti-social behaviour linked to mischief night, halloween, the bonfire period and freshers' week.


To meet these challenges the CSP produced a local Community Safety Partnership Plan for 2012/13. The plan was designed to reflect our local priorities and to clearly evidence our commitment to work in partnership through delivery groups such as the Local Priorities Group and the Prevent and Deter Group. 


The plan also provides information on the planned introduction of elected Police and Crime Commissioners and Police and Crime Panels from November 2012.


Please note that the targets and priorities for the 2012/13 CSP Plan are currently in the process of being revised. A refreshed version of the document is to be made available for 2013/14.   


The CSP Plan also has strong links to the West Lancashire Health and Wellbeing thematic group. To find out more and to view their action plan visit West Lancashire Local Strategic Partnership website (external link)
