Review of the Governance of Community Safety pdf icon PDF 69 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Senior Assistant Director, Housing, Safer Communities, Recreation and Libraries presented the report on Review of Governance of Community Safety.

 

Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) were established as statutory bodies under Section 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 makes explicit that tackling crime requires a partnership approach with key local organisations working together to deliver a shared strategy for the benefit of local

communities. Under the Terms of Reference of the People’s Board, the Board has the statutory responsibilities of a CSP.

 

There is a requirement to annually assess local crime priorities and to consult partners and the local community about how to deal with them. CSP’s have no national targets and rely on local communities for prioritising issues.

The current priorities for Safer Communities were set out in the report at Paragraph 3.1 alongside the current priorities for the Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) for Merseyside Police at Paragraph 3.2. It was noted that the Safer Communities priorities were consistent with that of the of PCC for Merseyside Police.

The report presented to the Board proposed the review the current multi-agency partnership governance framework, as a Strategic Needs Analysis was currently in progress, and this will form the basis of a new Community Safety Plan for the Borough.

The Board was advised that the review will also provide the opportunity to take into account changes that have occurred since arrangements were agreed in 2016 and will consider proposals to rationalise the existing number of delivery groups and to establish a multi-agency Operational Partnership Group which will oversee and manage the delivery groups and report to the People’s Board.


*           Resolved that:

(1)             the report be noted;

(2)             the current governance arrangements for Community Safety be reviewed;

(3)             a report be presented to a future meeting of the People’s Board setting out revised governance proposals following consultation with partners and stakeholders.
