Aims and Objectives 

The Safer Stockton Partnership continues to support the priorities of the Police and Crime Commissioner and in particular the following:-

  • A better deal for victims and witnesses, this priority has strong links to ours in protecting vulnerable people                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
  • Tackling re-offending, this links directly within the community safety plan for the priority in reducing re-offending                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      
  • Working together to make Cleveland safer, linking directly with Community Safety and Protection                     
  • Securing the future of our communities and how this links into all of the themed priorities within the community safety plan, to strengthen support and to effectively target and tackle issues as they emerge

The strategic plan for SSP is produced every three years and is known as the Community Safety Plan. We completed our Crime and Disorder consultation, which ran in March 2017. 

During March 2017 the Partnership undertook an on-line survey accessed via My Views on Stockton council website. More than 115 responded to a set of questions based on the four priorities identified through the partnerships strategic assessment.

The table on the link below shows the percentage of the responses to each of the four priorities based on scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being of the most important. The results of the consultation were used to develop the Community Safety Plan 2017-2020.
