Community Safety Partnership

Community Safety Partnership 

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 West Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group
  • The Probation Service / Lancashire & Cumbria Community Rehabilitation Company
  • Plus important contributions from other partner agencies

In 2016 the CSP implemented a new set of 3 year priorities. These focused on reducing violent crime, domestic abuse, child sexual exploitation, road safety and organised crime including 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. The plan was designed to reflect our local priorities and to clearly evidence our commitment to work in partnership through established thematic delivery groups.

The list of priorities were evidenced through the Strategic Assessment 2015 process and the Community Safety Partnership have endorsed the following six community safety priorities for 2016 to 2019: -

  • Violent Crime (in particular alcohol related)
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Sexual Offences (including child sexual exploitation)
  • Anti-Social Behaviour (nuisance)
  • Road Safety
  • Cross Border Crime / Organised Crime Groups

The Community Safety Partnership and its thematic groups are responsible for local delivery against the above priorities and the Community Partnership priorities will be reviewed annually.
