The Charnwood Community Safety Partnership (CSP) brings together statutory agencies and organisations concerned with tackling and reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in Charnwood and who have shared responsibility placed on them by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. 

The CSP has a legal responsibility to tackle crime, anti-social behaviour, drug and alcohol misuse and to contribute to communities feeling safe. The key role of the CSP is to identify and prioritise the community safety issues that are affecting our communities and to ensure control strategies are put in place to address identified concerns.

Each year, the Partnership reviews performance and emerging issues to enable it to set new priorities and target. The three broad themes of the Partnership are:

  • Making Communities Safer
  • Protecting Vulnerable People
  • Improving Community Confidence, Engagement and Cohesion
