Community Safety Partnership
The statutory partners that make up the Pendle Community Safety Partnership are:
- Pendle Borough Council
- East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group
- Lancashire Constabulary
- Lancashire Fire and Rescue Services
- Lancashire County Council
- Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner
- National Probation Service
The membership of Partnership also includes many more organisations such as:
- Housing Pendle
- Lancashire Youth Offending Team
- Lancashire Young People's Service
We work together to manage, prevent and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough. Our aim is to make Pendle a safer place to live and work.
As part of our Strategic Assessment we identify key priorities for the year ahead.
Based on our Strategic Assessment, a Partnership Plan is developed, which identifies the actions we will take to deliver against the priorities. The targets and specific actions are monitored at our bi-monthly Delivery Group.
Community Safety Area Working Groups
We have five Community Safety Area Working Groups covering Pendle. These are Barrowford and Western Parishes, Brierfield and Reedley, Colne and District, Nelson and West Craven.
These groups regularly meet to discuss Police and Communities Together (PACT) priorities in your local area and to receive an update on crime statistics. You also have a chance to raise any matters of concerns which you may have and to seek action.
The membership of the groups consists of residents, Pendle Council, town and parish councils, the Police, and community volunteers. These meetings allow you to feed any issues which you may have to the Police and the Council and allow action to be taken.
We are keen to encourage new members at these meetings. You can be added to our mailing list by contacting us to receive all future notices of meetings, and the papers, or alternatively, just turn up to the schedule meeting for your area.
Community Safety Partnership Plan 2013-14
The Pendle Community Safety Partnership has developed a plan which sets out what we will do to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the Borough during 2013/14. This Plan is based on our Annual Strategic Assessment which provides the evidence for our approach.
The Partnership Plan and the Strategic Assessment will be reviewed annually to take account of any changes in patterns of crime, anti-social behaviour, community concerns and national priorities.
Violent crime, vehicle crime and criminal damage have all fallen and you're now less likely to be burgled than you were in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
Our Strategic Assessment sets out what our priorities are for the next 12 months and outlines how we're going to keep crime and anti- social behaviour rates down.
