Community Safety: the National Picture

Government Offices make a regional contribution to the Government’s aim to build a safe, just and tolerant society, protect the public and ensure the balance between the rights and responsibilities of individuals, families and communities is properly maintained. Government Offices also deliver the four key themes of the National Drug Strategy.

In supporting work to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and the harm caused by drugs, Government Offices work with and monitor the performance of local Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) and Drug Action Teams, promoting their joint working with Local Strategic Partnerships where appropriate. Government Offices also work with local authorities, the voluntary and community sector, and Local Strategic Partnerships in helping to build strong communities.

Government Offices provide links between crime reduction programmes and other Government initiatives such as social inclusion, the regeneration of deprived communities, competitiveness and sustainable development, through local and regional partnership working.

We also support the work of the police in their work with CDRPs to introduce innovative policing practice aimed at tackling the problems within local communities.

Government Offices play an important role in supporting local approaches to community cohesion and active citizenship. Working closely with local agencies, we ensure that all communities have access to involvement in the delivery of local programmes, and that the causes of inter-community tensions are understood and tackled. We also work to improve the engagement of local agencies with black and minority ethnic and faith communities to promote good practice in planning and delivering services for diverse communities..
