The Antrim and Newtownabbey Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) works to make communities safer. The aim is to empower communities to develop solutions in partnership to tackle crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.
Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP is comprised of elected members, independent members and representatives from statutory bodies.
Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP works with the community to identify issues of concern in the local area. Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP aims to tackle crime, the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour in the local community.
Many of these community safety issues cannot be resolved in isolation; Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP brings together statutory agencies, communities and funded projects to discuss, agree and co-ordinate the most appropriate action in addressing local issues.
The PCSP aims to improve community safety by:
Engaging and consulting with local people to help improve policing and community safety
Identifying and prioritising issues of concern and working in partnership to tackle these issues
Monitor the performance of police and work to gain the co-operation of the public in preventing crime
Delivering a range of programmes or interventions in partnership with local communities and partner agencies to enhance community safety by impacting on crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour
