Community safety partnerships (CSPs) are made up of representatives from the police and Police and Crime Commissioner, the local council, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, Clinical Commissioning Groups and probation services (responsible authorities). Community safety partnerships were set up as statutory bodies under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
The responsible authorities work together to develop and implement strategies to protect their local communities from crime and to help people feel safe. They work out local approaches to deal with issues including antisocial behaviour, drug or alcohol misuse and re-offending as well as Crime and disorder. They also work with others who have a key role, including community groups, schools and registered local landlords.

Each of us can play an important part in reducing overall crime levels, by taking action to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of crime ourselves by taking on board crime prevention advice.
This can be done by making sure our homes and vehicles are secured, keeping valuables in a safe place, and making sure property is marked. We can also improve our personal safety by keeping wallets and purses, mobile phones and other items from view that are of interest to the opportunist thief.
