Community Safety Partnership

What is the Community Safety Partnership?

The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 requires that every local authority has a Community Safety Partnership.

Our partnership is called 'Safer South Tyneside' and comprises of representatives from the following agencies:

  • South Tyneside Council
  • Tyne & Wear Fire and Rescue Service
  • South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Northumbria Police
  • National Probation Service
  • Northumbria Community Rehabilitation Company
  • South Tyneside Homes
  • Youth Justice Service

Our Vision

The vision we are working towards delivering is that:

"South Tyneside will be a place where people feel safe because crime and ASB is the exception rather than the rule.

It will also be a place where everyone can feel involved and included in a way that suits them, where people understand and respect each other, and communities are actively engaged in decisions that affect them."

The Partnership Plan

The partnership has a duty to produce and publish a plan which sets out the strategic approach that will be used to tackle crime and disorder throughout the Borough.

The plan is a three year document which is refreshed on an annual basis.

We utilise data and intelligence from consultations with the public, business community and partner agencies and we regularly review this to ensure that we are focusing on the right things at the right time. This review forms the annual Community Safety Strategic Assessment, which is the main evidence base for this plan.

Having analysed this data and intelligence, we are confident that the partnership has identified the priority areas that will have the most positive impact in our communities.

Our priorities for 2018-19:

The priorities identified in the Strategic Assessment that we have agreed to focus on in 2018-19 are:

  • Violence against the person (including domestic violence and abuse)
  • Youth-related disorder
  • Noise nuisance
  • Environmental crime

The associated Action Plan was developed to reflect the priorities at the time of development. This is a dynamic plan and actions will be amended, added or removed to reflect current developments.
