Community Safety Partnership

Community Safety Partnership

The South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership of which Broxtowe Borough Council is a member brings together a range of different organisations to tackle issues across Broxtowe and the rest of South Nottinghamshire.

Our vision is:

"To work together in South Nottinghamshire to reduce crime and improve the quality of life for you and your community."

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Working with our partners and communities to find local solutions to local problems

  • Reducing crime and the fear of crime in neighbourhoods throughout South Nottinghamshire

  • Promoting Safer Communities

  • Reducing the misuse of drugs and alcohol and the associated problems

Who is involved in the partnership

The Partnership includes:

  • Broxtowe Borough Council

  • Rushcliffe Borough Council

  • Gedling Borough Council

  • Nottinghamshire Police

  • Nottinghamshire County Council

  • Nottingham Probation Service

  • Office of the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner

  • Primary Care Trust

  • and more

The South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership works in conjunction with the Broxtowe Borough Partnership.

Community Safety covers a broad spread of issues for the local community, from reducing crime and anti social behaviour to providing CCTV and security services at locations across the Borough.

The Communities Team works to address these issues in communities across Broxtowe. The team also helps to run the South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership and works closely with other organisations such as the Police to plan a strategic approach that will help to tackle community safety issues across the Borough.

The main areas of work covered by the Communities Team include:

  • Working with partners to reduce crime

  • Co-ordinating domestic abuse services

  • Supporting drug and alcohol awareness and diversionary activities

  • Investigating and enforcing anti-social behaviour

  • Raising awareness of and reducing hate crime

  • Reducing risk and safeguarding vulnerable people
