Crime and community safety JSNA

The crime and community safety jsna outlines how we will help to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population

The Crime & Community Safety JSNA will help to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population by:

  • Providing an up-to-date evidence-based resource to support health and wellbeing planning and commissioning. Please note: There are a variety of groups within the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) that discuss issues and prepare bespoke analysis relevant to those groups on a regular basis.
  • Highlighting areas where there is a need to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for the local community. As mentioned, the CSP responds to a wide variety of crime and incidents in a timely manner and highlights areas to improve outcomes.
  • Identifying groups with a greater or unmet need (vulnerable groups). The CSP works with a wide range of victims and offenders. For example, adults with a care and support need would also be more susceptible to crime like distraction burglary.
  • Supporting decision makers to allocate resources. All the subgroups within the CSP provide information to help each other tackle issues. A huge amount of work takes place to tackle community safety issues and the issues are constantly changing. Regular meetings are held to allocate where resources are needed. Some partners must react very quickly to an issue and will request bespoke briefings when required, to see if the issue is still continuing or has reduced in a particular area.

To ensure that our local 'Crime & Community Safety JSNA' is comprehensive and adequately describes the current and future needs of our local population it has been broken down into several individual Needs Assessments for specific topic areas or population groups. The Crime and Community Safety JSNA is one of these topic areas.
