Countywide Community Safety Strategic Board

Local Authorities, Police, Fire and Rescue Service, National Probation Service, Clinical Commissioning Group, Community Rehabilitation Company (the “Responsible Authorities”), the Police and Crime Commissioner, and Community Safety Partnerships have various statutory duties in relation to reducing crime and disorder.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Countywide Community Safety Strategic Board helps the Responsible Authorities coordinate their duty to reduce crime and disorder in their communities by:

  • bringing together the Responsible Authorities and other relevant partners to inform on relevant crime, disorder and community safety issues creating opportunities for greater effectiveness through partnership working;
  • identifying how the Responsible Authorities in the county area might reduce or prevent crime and disorder and improve community safety through co-ordinated or joint work to reflect the outcomes set in the Police and Crime Plan;
  • supporting Responsible Authorities to implement the “think family” approach as an effective preventative tool;
  • acting as lead Board for specific areas of priority and liaising with other boards for other areas of delivery as defined within the Agreement.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is the Chair of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Countywide Community Safety Strategic Board. The Board meets quarterly.
