EXETER COMMUNITY SAFETY PARTNERSHIP
As part of Safer Devon, the Exeter Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is a multi-agency strategic group created with the sole purpose of ‘making a safer city’.
Exeter CSP comprises a number of member organisations and includes representatives from agencies with a statutory responsibility for community safety, as well as partners from key voluntary and not-for-profit agencies.
Members of the partnership meet on a quarterly basis to discuss emerging community issues and strategies that aim to reduce the levels of crime and anti-social behaviour in local neighbourhoods and reduce the fear of such activities across the district.
The responsibilities of the partnership are divided into a number of operational groups that each look at a specific community issue. Examples include groups investigating anti-social behaviour, domestic and sexual violence and abuse, the night time economy, street attachment and hate crime.
The priorities for Exeter Community Safety Partnership in 2020 are:
- Radicalisation and Hate Crime
- Locality based Anti-Social Behaviour problem solving
- Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence and Abuse
- Reducing Serious Violence and Organised Crime including County Lines
