Community Safety Partnership

The Bradford Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is a multi agency partnership working to make our district safer.

Our purpose is to tackle crime, disorder, anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol misuse problems.

The Community Safety Partnership Board is our governing body and this is chaired by Councillor Abdul Jabar, the Neighbourhoods and Safer Communities Portfolio holder with the Deputy Chair being Chief Superintendent Scott Bisset. There is good representation on the Board from other agencies including Probation Trust, Fire & Rescue Service, Third Sector, Public Health and the CPS.

Our Partnership Structure

Bradford Community Safety Partnership Board meets quarterly having responsibility for:

  • Oversight of the District Plan Safe, Clean and Active Communities Priorities.
  • Delivery of statutory requirement for a Community Safety Partnership as set out under the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act and subsequent legislative amendments which include the development and delivery of a 3 year "rolling" community safety plan which is reviewed annually through a strategic assessment.

Strategic groups sit underneath the Community Safety Partnership Board who define and drive community safety outcomes to support the priority areas which are;

  • Tackling Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence
  • Tackling Crime and Reoffending
  • Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour

Each year the Partnership prepares a Strategic Assessment to assist in revising the plan and the community safety priorities for the district.

The strategic assessment includes information on:

  • Analysis of levels of crime.
  • Changes in crime since last strategic assessment.
  • Views from the community on matters that need to be prioritised.

The Community Safety Partnership Board is directly accountable for its work and its success in achieving outcomes to the Bradford District Partnership Board.
