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 
  • Plus important contributions from other partner agencies

In 2022 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, anti-social behaviour 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 Freshers Week.

To meet these challenges, the CSP will produce 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 multi-agency plan will be completed by July 2022.

The list of above priorities were evidenced through the Strategic Assessment 2021 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.
