Community Safety Partnership

The Team Bury Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is made up of representatives including:

  • Local authorities
  • Police
  • Fire & Rescue Service
  • Probation Trust
  • Clinical Commissioning groups

who work together to help reduce crime in the local community and help people feel safe.

The police cannot reduce crime on their own; therefore effective partnership working is essential. Each partner agency brings its own expertise, resources and understanding of the issues that affect the local community to the partnership. Working together allows for initiatives that tackle both the causes and effects of crime: and also reduces duplication of effort and the risk of partner agencies taking conflicting actions as well as reducing costs.

The partnership has identified 4 priorities, these are:

  • Protecting vulnerable people.
  • Reducing crime and anti social behaviour
  • Transforming justice 
  • Building strong and resilient communities

What are the statutory obligations?

The statutory obligations placed on the partnership are to:

  • set up a strategic group to direct the work of the partnership
  • regularly engage and consult with the community about their priorities
  • set up protocols and systems for sharing information
  • analyse a wide range of data, including recorded crime levels and patterns, in order to identify priorities
  • set out a partnership plan and monitor progress
  • produce a strategy to reduce re-offending
  • commission domestic violence homicide reviews - published in the downloads section below
  • PCCs are under a duty to work with their community safety partners
  • PCCs and CSPs are under a duty to take each other's priorities into account.
