Community Safety Partnership

The Argyll and Bute’s Community Safety Partnership Co-ordinating and Tasking Group -2016 -2020

Successfully launched in December 2016

Argyll and Bute is a safe place to live in and visit and has a low crime rate. There are, nevertheless, issues which impact on community safety.

Localised problems of disorder, anti-social behaviour and vandalism occur in urban centres and are usually related to alcohol and sometimes drugs.

Road and Water safety affects the whole of Argyll and Bute and Community Safety Partners have an important role to play in promoting and developing a culture of safety on the roads and water.

Partnership Structure and Responsibilities:

The Partners

  • Partners are drawn from organisations involved in the delivery of Outcome 6: People Live in Safer and Stronger Communities and related community safety activities.

 

  • Partners also link into other partnerships and networks with a focus on specialised elements of community safety as part of their day to day activities and bring this knowledge to the forum

 

  • A list of the organisations involved can be found on page 10 of the Community Safety Strategy 2016 -2020

 

The Argyll and Bute’s Community Safety Partnership Co-ordinating and Tasking Group aims to improve the quality of life of residents and visitors to Argyll and Bute by reducing risks and protecting them from hazards, threats and the criminal or anti-social behaviour of others.

The Argyll and Bute’s  Community Safety Strategy 2016-2020 identifies four priorities based upon a strategic assessment of community safety issues including analysis of data, consultation with partner services and engagement with residents about their concerns. The strategic assessment underpins a problem solving approach to Community Safety and action which focuses on education and prevention, early intervention and, where appropriate, enforcement measures. The Partnership have agreed on four priorities for the Community Safety Partnership which are:

  • Tackle disorder, anti-social behaviour and violence.
  • Promote safer communities and the personal safety of the young, elderly and vulnerable groups.
  • Protect the natural and built environment
  • Encourage safer road use
