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.


The Safer City Partnership has worked together to identify the priorities below. These are informed by our experience, emerging concerns, national priorities and documents such as the City of London Police’s Strategic Assessment. The priorities also represent areas where a partnership approach can add value. Given the ever evolving nature of the City of London and changes in crime and other threats we need to be flexible and agile in our responses. 

​For the year 2016-17 we will focus on:

  • Violence Against the Person – to protect those who work, live or visit the City from crimes of violence.
  • Night Time Economy Crime and Nuisance – to promote the City as a safe place to socialise.
  • Acquisitive Crime – we will work to protect our residents, workers, businesses and visitors from theft and fraud with an emphasis on cyber-crime.
  • Anti-Social Behaviour – to respond effectively to behaviour that makes the City a less pleasant place.
  • Supporting the Counter Terrorism Strategy Through Delivery of the Prevent Strategy - to challenge radicalisation of vulnerable people and reduce the threat posed to the City.

In addition we will work with partners to reduce bicycle related accidents and fatalities. We will also support efforts to address other areas of concern. To support the delivery of this strategy we will be developing an Implementation Plan to help measure our progress toward our objectives. This will provide the basis for our annual review in March 2017 and will help inform and refresh our strategy for the year ahead. During 2016 we will also be improving how we communicate with our partners and all sections of our community.
