Community safety delivery plan outline 2022 - 2023
Lichfield Community Safety Partnership is the statutory partnership that coordinates the response to crime and disorder across the District. Hosted within the District Council the partnership consists of a wide range of different agencies and voluntary sector services.
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 changed the way crime and anti-social behaviour was to be tackled, as it is recognised that in order to be effective, agencies needed to work together to address the issues collectively.
Community Safety Partnership (CSP) in Lichfield District
Lichfield District CSP has a core group of members that includes representatives from the following organisations:
- Lichfield District Council
- Staffordshire Police
- Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service
- Staffordshire Probation Service
- Staffordshire County Council
- Bromford Housing Group
- Support Staffordshire
Although this delivery plan is for the Lichfield District area only, we acknowledge that there is a great deal of value of ensuring that we coordinate a response across the county and indeed, across borders to other related locations. So we will work alongside Staffordshire Community Safety Forum and with partnerships and agencies in the West Midlands and beyond where appropriate.
Our main focus is ensuring that we work together with services and partner agencies to provide the best possible customer service to our Lichfield District residents. To enable us to achieve this we hold Partnership Hubs where various agencies discuss issues and concerns and work together in order to come to the best possible outcome.
