The 1998 Crime and Disorder Act places a statutory duty on Community Safety Partnerships to develop a strategic plan. This must address multi-agency issues which effect the quality of life for residents. The Kirklees Communities Partnership Board (our CSP) fulfils the statutory duty of the Community Safety Partnership for Kirklees but also has responsibility for cohesion, and inclusion.
Kirklees Communities Partnership plan
The Kirklees Communities Partnership Plan identifies the strategic community safety priorities for the district. This is done by engagement and consultation with a wide range of statutory partners. These include:
- The council and its elected members
- The Police
- Fire and Rescue Authority
- Probation Services
- non-statutory partners such as:
- community and voluntary sector providers
- the health sector
The priorities within this plan are informed through an in-depth analysis of data from a range of community safety agencies. These are detailed in a Partnership Strategic Intelligence Assessment (SIA) for Kirklees. The Partnership SIA brings together a wide range of data sources. These relate to crime, anti-social behaviour, environmental issues and substance misuse alongside perceptions insight concerning public confidence and reassurance. The SIA considers the changing socio-economic and demographic profile of Kirklees to contextualise some of the community safety hotspots in the district.
The Kirklees communities partnership plan highlights the four main themes we will be focusing on from 2018-2021:
Safer Dewsbury Town Centre Group
The Safer Dewsbury Town Centre Group was formed at the start of 2020 with the aim of making Dewsbury Town Centre a safe place to live, visit and work.
The group brings together strategic and operational partners from across Kirklees to deliver the Safer Dewsbury Town Centre action plan. The group is made up of senior officials within the local partnership, councillors and business owners.
