Community Safety Partnership

Community Safety Partnership 

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

The CSP 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 2019 the CSP has implemented a new set of 3 year priorities. The priorities are focused on reducing hate crime, victimisation, vulnerability and exploitation, reoffending, serious and organised crime and improving road safety. Reducing the types of localised anti-social behaviour prevalent in West Lancashire was also prioritised, including anti-social behaviour linked to the bonfire period and Welcome Week.

To meet these challenges the CSP has produced a local Community Safety Partnership Plan. The plan is 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 2018 process and the Community Safety Partnership and its thematic groups are responsible for local delivery against the above priorities. The CSP's priorities will be reviewed annually.
