The community safety partnership
The Monmouthshire Community Safety Partnership (CSP) was set up as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
It is a partnership between the five statutory partners (Monmouthshire County Council, Gwent Police, Local Health Board, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, Gwent Police Authority and others) working to combat crime and disorder and promote community safety in the county.
The following are the main aims, which the CSP hopes to achieve during the period 2009/2012 in line with the Community Safety Partnership Action Plan 09/12:
- Monmouthshire is a county where people are safe from violence.
- The property and belongings of the people of Monmouthshire are more secure
- Monmouthshire is a place where people are less affected by anti social behaviour
- People in the county are less affected by the misuse of drugs and alcohol
- Monmouthshire is a county where roads are safer for people to use.
- Monmouthshire is a county in which people are less fearful of crime and disorder
- The CSP has several sub groups, which concentrate on combating domestic abuse and substance misuse
Locally the partnership's work is steered by the local community safety action teams (CSATs), which are organised on an area basis and deal with local problems.
Recent projects supported by the CSAT's are:
- Local events to combat anti-social behaviour e.g. cruise control event held in August 2008 aimed at reducing anti-social use of cars in streets and car parks
- Security fencing has also been provided in areas where a problem was identified
- Improving personal safety via providing personal attack alarms
- Removing disorder in areas by dispersal orders
- The partnership has an on-street CCTV system provided with town councils used as a tool to combat crime and disorder and to help with the management of town centres
- The CCTV system is run by Monmouthshire County Council
