Dorset Community Safety Partnership

Community Safety Partnerships are committed to tackling not only crime and the fear of crime, but also the causes of crime.

The purpose of the Dorset Community Safety Partnership (CSP)

To deliver safer communities as set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and relevant legislation. 

The CSP will co-ordinate community safety activity in Dorset at a strategic level:

  • to reduce crime and the fear of crime
  • to address the risk, threat and harm to victims and local communities
  • facilitate the strengthening of Dorset's communities in the delivery of local initiatives

Pan Dorset Community Safety and Criminal Justice Board

In early 2016, the three Community Safety Partnerships in Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole and their statutory partners agreed to create a Pan-Dorset Community Safety and Criminal Justice Board. The Board held its first meeting on 24 April 2016.

The purpose of the Board is to coordinate the activity of community safety and criminal justice partners at a strategic level. The priority is to reduce and prevent crime, anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime and increase confidence in the Criminal Justice System.
