Community Safety Action Plan

Agencies with a responsibility for community safety are required by The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 to share information and work together to address crime and disorder. This includes publishing a strategy for the reduction of crime and disorder in their area.

The North Hertfordshire Community Safety Partnership develops an annual plan which addresses our strategic priorities each year. This is called the North Hertfordshire Community Safety Action Plan (NHCSAP).

The NHCSAP for 2021-22 is attached below. It contains a summary of the objectives the partnership aim to achieve and the timescales for completion.

The strategic priorities for 2021-22 are:

  • anti-social behaviour (including deliberate fires, fly tipping and criminal damage)
  • burglary (residential, business and community)
  • rural crime (including fly-tipping, coursing, theft, arson)
  • protecting vulnerable people
  • violence (inc. night time economy, domestic abuse, gangs and county lines, substance misuse)
