Community Safety Partnership

'Bury's Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is a multi-agency group set up under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The Partnership approach is built on the premise that no single agency can deal with, or be responsible for dealing with, complex community safety issues and that these issues can be addressed more effectively and efficiently through working in partnership. Partners that contribute to the CSP are:

  • Greater Manchester Police
  • Bury Council
  • Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service
  • Probation Service
  • Community Rehabilitation Company,
  • Youth Offending Service
  • Bury Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Public Health

In 2019 we launched our 3-year Community Safety Plan which identifies the priorities that we feel are most important to keeping the people of Bury safe.
