Working in Partnership

Tackling crime and disorder and making communities feel safer is not just a role for the police.

Most of the services that affect crime and re-offending levels are delivered by organisations such as local authorities, the fire and rescue service, young people’s services, probation trust and the health service.

So a strong partnership approach must be central to policing – and this is something the Police and Crime Commissioner believes in.  His priorities are based on the following principle:

‘To be tough on crime and the causes of crime, tackling and preventing crime by promoting an evidence-based, partnership approach to identify “what works” and how I can add value.’

The Commissioner is working closely with the following to help tackle the priorities:

  • partners in Local Government and Welsh Government
  • partners in other public services, particularly the NHS
  • victims groups and voluntary and community organisations
  • the business community and other interested parties

The Commissioner has responsibilities wider than those relating to the police force, including the:

  • delivery of community safety and crime reduction
  • ability to bring together community safety partnerships at force level
  • issuing of crime and disorder reduction grants in the South Wales area
  • duty to ensure that collaboration agreements deliver better value for money or effectiveness for the police
  • enhancement of the delivery of criminal justice in the area.
