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

Every three years the Safer Stockton Partnership (SSP) undertake a Crime and Disorder Audit and following public consultation, produce a Community Safety Plan which sets out how agencies within the Partnership intend to achieve targets in crime reduction.

The last public consultation was carried out in March 2017 and the results of the consultation were used to develop the Community Safety Plan 2017-2020.

We are now wanting to seek the views of the public to understand what you feel the partnership should be focusing on during the next period from April 2020 until March 2023. Have your say here.

Deadline: Sunday 15 March 2020
