Community Safety Partnerships were set up under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
The responsible authorities work together to protect their local communities from crime and to help people feel safer. They work out how to deal with local issues including antisocial behaviour, drug or alcohol misuse and re-offending. They annually assess local crime priorities and consult partners and the local community about how to deal with them.
