Community Safety Strategy

The Strategy 2017 - 2020

The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) brings together a collection of people and organisations that have a real commitment to do everything in their power to have a positive impact on reducing crime and disorder, protecting people from harm and to work closely alongside local communities in bringing about a sense of safety for all.

Our purpose

Keeping everyone safe is at the heart of everything we are striving to achieve. The primary purpose of the CSP is to work together to make people and neighbourhoods within the district of Blaby and
