As part of Safer Devon, South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership (CSP) works closely with agencies spread throughout South Hams, Teignbridge and West Devon.

We aim to make our communities even safer places to live, work and enjoy by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. We focus on reducing vulnerability through raising awareness and building confidence in our communities around key community safety issues.

South Devon and Dartmoor CSP meets on a regular basis to set agreed priorities for the partnership, which is done by reviewing intelligence about our area from sources such as the Devon Strategic Assessment.


The priorities for South Devon and Dartmoor Community Safety Partnership are:

  • Domestic and sexual violence and abuse
  • Vulnerability
  • Child sexual exploitation and abuse
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Modern slavery
  • Preventing extremism
  • Reducing reoffending
  • County lines and dangerous drugs networks
