Community Safety is a nationally recognised term widely used by politicians, practitioners and academics who are involved in localised action against crime, anti-social behaviour, re-offending and the fear of these.
Across the country, local Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) were introduced in 1998, and are made up of a number of statutory organisations that are required by law to work together to reduce crime, disorder, reoffending and the public’s perceptions of these.
In Erewash, these organisations include:
- Derbyshire Constabulary
- Derbyshire County Council
- Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service
- DNLR Community Rehabilitation Company
- Erewash Borough Council
- Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group
- National Probation Service
- Police and Crime Commissioner
These organisations, along with many others including the voluntary sector and residents, work together to address the community safety needs of Erewash communities.
Erewash Community Safety Partnership is committed to tackling crime and anti-social behaviour across our communities.
Using the Derbyshire Strategic Risk & Threat Areas, the data and statistics in the 2016 Community Safety Strategic Intelligence Assessment and by listening to our communities, Erewash CSP has identified four priorities that are of concern in our communities for 2017-2020. These can be found in our 2017-2020 Partnership Plan, which can be viewed by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.

What is the Community Trigger?
The Community Trigger gives, those affected by anti-social behaviour, the right to request an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review of the response to their reports of anti-social behaviour. The Community Trigger should only be used if you think your concerns have not been dealt with, or acted upon, by agencies.
Concerns about individual officers, or services, should continue to be directed to the relevant organisation’s complaints procedure and/or the Ombudsman or the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
