Community Safety Partnership logo

Statutory Function

The Crime & Disorder Act 1998 and subsequent legislation, requires each Crime & Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) to have a Community Safety Partnership (CSP), which takes on all legal, statutory and strategic responsibilities to put in place measures to:

  • prevent Crime and Anti Social Behaviour,
  • prevent the misuse of drugs, alcohol and other substances; and
  • prevent re-offending.

The Community Safety Partnership is made up of a wide range of public, private and voluntary agencies locally including:

  • Telford & Wrekin Council
  • West Mercia Police
  • Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service
  • NHS Telford & Wrekin
  • National Probation Service
  • The Wrekin Housing Trust
  • Youth Justice Service
  • Police and Crime Commissioner's Office.

All partners are working together to improve the quality of life for you by:

  • understanding the kind of community safety issues the Borough is experiencing;
  • decide which of these are the most important to deal with; and
  • decide what actions can be taken collectively, adding value to the day-to-day work undertaken by the individual agencies.
