Community Safety Partnership
Reducing crime is one of the top priorities for Redbridge Council and the other organisations, which are members of the Redbridge Safer Communities Partnership.
The work of the Community Safety Partnership (CSP), directly supports the Council's Strategic Delivery Plan, by identifying priorities and agreeing approaches to keeping the borough safe. The over-arching objectives of the partnership are to:
- Reduce crime and anti-social behaviour
- Reduce re-offending
- Reduce alcohol and substance misuse
The Safer Redbridge Strategy
Priorities and actions identified to achieve these over-arching objectives are set out in the Redbridge CSP - Safer Redbridge Strategy, which is reviewed annually.
The Safer Redbridge Strategy identifies key priorities, which all organisations within the partnership agree to focus their resources on, working collaboratively to maximise the effect that can be achieved by working in partnership with each other.
The priorities agreed by the Redbridge Community Safety Partnership are:
- Safeguarding Vulnerable Victims, including: Violence Against Women and Girls (V.A.W.G.); Hate Crime; Repeat Victims; Trafficking and Modern Slavery
- Reducing Vulnerability to Offend, including: Gangs and Serious Group Violence; Non-affiliated Street Violence; Integrated Offender Management (I.O.M.); Alcohol and Drug Offending
- Robbery and Burglary
- Ilford Town Centre
- Safeguarding from Radicalisation
Safer Redbridge Strategies:
The current Safer Redbridge Strategy covers the period 2017-21. It was last reviewed and amended in March 2020 for the final 2020-2021 year of the original strategy, to reflect the changing priorities as identified by the partnership.
- The Safer Redbridge Strategy 2017-21 (Revised April 2020)
- The Safer Redbridge Strategy 2017-21 (Revised April 2018)
- The Safer Redbridge Strategy 2017-21 (Published April 2017)
The Safer Redbridge Strategy will next be reviewed by April 2021, when the current strategy comes to an end. A new strategy will be published following discussion at the Redbridge Community Safety Partnership Board and taking due regard of London wide crime reduction plans published by the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC).
