Carlisle and Eden Community Safety Partnership Priorities
The Carlisle and Eden Community Safety Partnership has a number of responsibilities, including, producing an assessment of local crime and disorder issues; identifying priority issues for our communities; and producing a plan to outline how we intend to address these priorities through our task groups.
CSP priorities are:
- Violent Crime - including alcohol related violent crime
- Anti-social Behaviour - including youth disorder and criminal damage
- Domestic Violence
- Prolific and Priority Offenders
Substance and alcohol misuse remains a key issue for communities and the Partnership. In order to reduce duplication and provide the most appropriate targeted action, we will work closely with Cumbria Constabulary and Cumbria Drug and Alcohol Action Team to identify areas where we can add value to existing programmes of work.
Acquisitive crime will continue to be addressed through action targeting, substance misuse and prolific offenders. However, it is also recommended that the Partnership continues to provide preventative and target hardening measures and respond to known seasonal trends to ensure this crime type continues to fall.
The CSP will address these issues through the following task groups and closely working with our partners and communities.
