Community Safety

The Safer Communities Team at Government Office for the East of England (GO-East) committed to helping reduce crime and anti social behaviour and to tackling the problems caused by drugs. We are responsible for the delivery of the national Crime and Drugs Strategies; ‘Cutting Crime: A New Partnership’ and ‘Drugs: Protecting Families and Communities’.

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. More information on the national picture

We do this by working to improve the effectiveness of the region's 46 Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) and the 10 Drug and Alcohol Action Teams (DAATs) by:

  • providing advice and support in delivering the government's crime and drugs Public Service Agreement targets
  • providing a link between the partnerships and central government departments.
  • monitoring partnership performance through the Local Area Agreements.
  • providing partnership challenge and improvement support
  • sharing effective practice.  
  • providing training opportunities, conferences and seminars

Government Offices provide links between crime reduction and drug action programmes and other Government initiatives such as social inclusion and the regeneration of deprived communities. We work closely with the following co-located teams:

  • Home Office Regional Research Analysis Team, which undertakes research and analysis of crime patterns and trends with an emphasis on identifying, evaluating and disseminating good practice to CDRPs.
  • Drugs National Treatment Agency (NTA) Team, which drives the delivery of drugs treatment services throughout England.
  • National Offender Management Service (NOMS) Strategic Partnership Manager.
  • Regional Public Health

We also work with the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism in the Home Office to help deliver elements of the UK’s counter-terrorism strategy (known as CONTEST), and with Communities and Local Government to support communities to improve their capacity to fight extremism.
