The Safe Durham Partnership oversees the strategic delivery of the 'safe' theme as part of the County Durham Partnership. It is also the statutory Community Safety Partnership (CSP) that covers County Durham as prescribed in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and subsequent legislation.
Being and feeling safe is important to the people of County Durham and, as such, is a key priority within County Durham Partnership’s Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) 2009-23.
Partners have been working together to reduce crime and disorder since 1998 and, in Durham, we have seen considerable reductions in crime as a result. However, we recognise that we still face major challenges ahead to narrow the gap between our more deprived communities, who are still more likely to be victims and offenders of crime and anti-social behaviour, and our more affluent areas, as well as the fear of crime which continues to limit people’s quality of life.
The Safe Durham Partnership has developed a three year Partnership Plan to tackle priorities identified from the annual Strategic Assessment. The plan will be reviewed on an annual basis to ensure that it remains current.
The plan takes into account responses from public consultation and local policy drivers such as the Sustainable Communities Strategy, the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment and the Children and Young People’s Plan.
