About Safer Gloucester
Who we are
The Safer Gloucester Partnership is the re-branded name of the former Gloucester Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership, which was formed in 1999 following the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The Partnership is a multi agency group, comprising representatives from organisations across Gloucester.
Safer Gloucester Partnership is governed by a Leadership Group comprising a number of responsible authorities. Membership of this group includes: Gloucestershire Constabulary, Gloucester City Council, Gloucestershire County Council, Gloucestershire Probation Trust, Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue and NHS Gloucestershire. The Chair of the Board is rotated on an annual basis.
The Leadership Group meet bi monthly.
Every six months, the Partnership hosts a Community Safety Panel meeting which is open to the public and reports are given of current activity, with a time for questions to the Leadership Group.
Safer Gloucester Partnership has themed based action groups to tackle the issues of importance.
Safer Gloucester Partnership’s vision is for people to be able to live, work or visit the Gloucester without fear for their own safety or the safety of others and to secure sustainable reductions in crime, anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime.
Following the completion of the Gloucestershire Community Safety Scanning Autumn 2011 document, a Safer Gloucester plan 2012 - 2013 was written to guide the work of the partnership as we endeavour to keep crime at a low level.
The scanning document and plan are reviewed annually to ensure that we are focussing on the right priorities based on multi agency data analysis or crime and disorder intelligence and information and community consultation conducted through surveys, public events and the Local Police Teams.
The plan outlines five priorities:
Anti Social Behaviour – our aim is to enhance the quality of life for our communities and as a multi agency partnership tackle persistent anti social behaviour.
Substance Misuse – our aim is to reduce the harm caused by the misuse of drugs and alcohol, including
Reducing Crime – in 2011/12, Gloucester saw a rise in crime of 1.12%, largely being caused by an increase in domestic burglary and thefts from motor vehicles. Safer Gloucester is working hard to reduce these and showing signs of recent success.
Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence - our aim is to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence by assessing and managing risk in each case and bringing offenders to justice.
Hate Crime - we seek to ensure that people and communities will be treated with fairness and equality where discrimination will be eliminated and diversity valued.
