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 (NHCSP) 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 2023-24 is attached below. It contains a summary of the objectives the partnership aimed to achieve and the timescales for completion.
The strategic priorities for 2023-24 are:
- Anti-Social Behaviour (including criminal damage, deliberate fires and environmental crime, vehicle ASB- speeding): the NHCSP will continue to work together to reduce all elements of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage across the district
- Violence Against Women and Girls (including domestic abuse, rape, serious sexual offences and stalking): the NHCSP will work together to prevent, deter and tackle Violence Against Women and Girls in North Herts.
- Current and emerging issues (including theft, scams, frauds and protecting vulnerable people).
