Safer City Partnership

Our vision is for the City of London to remain a safe place to work, live, visit and socialise.

We will achieve this by making the best possible use of the resources that we, as a partnership, can bring together to meet the needs of the City in relation to crime reduction and anti-social behaviour.

The City of London experiences low levels of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour. This reflects the efforts of the City of London Police, the City of London Corporation and many other partners. Working together we contribute to maintaining the City as the world’s leading financial and business centre as well as being an attractive place to live, socialise and visit. Since its establishment the Safer City Partnership (SCP) has played a key role in reducing crime and other harms. We will continue to build on these strong foundations.

Who we are

The Safer City Partnership involves representation from the following partners:

Those partners marked with an asterisk are the statutory partners under the Crime and Disorder Act (1998) and subsequent legislation. Collectively they are responsible for delivering the ambitions set out in this Plan. Over the course of the coming year we will continue to review the membership of the Safer City Partnership to ensure we have the representation to allow us to deliver across the breadth of our agenda without diminishing our strategic focus.

Priorities

The Safer City Partnership has worked together to identify key priorities for the next 3 years. These have been developed in consultation with our partners and communities and are also informed by data we hold, national priorities, and key documents such as the City of London Police’s Strategic Assessment. While there are identified areas of focus we will aim to be flexible and agile in responding to new challenges and problems.

For the period 2017-20 we will focus on:

  • Supporting the Counter Terrorism Strategy through delivery of the Prevent Strategy - to challenge radicalisation of vulnerable people, working closely with our communities and City businesses, to reduce the threat posed to the City.
  • Violence Against the Person – to protect those who live, work, study or socialize in the City from violent crime, abuse or exploitation.
  • Acquisitive Crime – working to protect our residents, workers, businesses and visitors from theft and fraud.
  • Night Time Economy Crime and Nuisance – ensuring the City remains a safe place to socialise and visit.
  • Anti-Social Behaviour – to respond effectively to problems, keeping the City a pleasant place to live and enjoy.

Cross cutting themes:

A key aim of the Community Safety Partnership is to ensure that vulnerability is a strong cross-cutting theme across our community safety priorities. We recognise that some individuals are more at risk than others and may also be at risk across several of our priority areas.

The following areas have been identified as requiring additional research and attention:

 

  • Suicide Prevention
  • Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG)
  • Sexual Abuse &Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Cyber-crime & Fraud (particularly vulnerable groups and the elderly)
  • Hate Crime
  • Offender management
  • Anti-Social Behaviour

 

In reviewing our priorities over the coming year, we will ensure that issues of vulnerability are fully taken account of in our work.
