The partnership in this district is called the St Albans Community Safety Partnership. The partners include...
- St Albans City and District Council
- Hertfordshire Constabulary
- Hertfordshire County Council
- Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service
- West Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust
- Youth Offending Team
- Hertfordshire Probation Area
- various local voluntary organisations
Consultation on the Community Safety Draft Strategy 2013/14
Each year the Community Safety Partnership consults with the public and local groups on its plans for the coming year to tackle crime and disorder across the District. The plan needs to contribute to the local and county objectives to have maximum effect in addition to supporting the Local Strategic Partnership's sustainable communities strategy.
A full copy of the draft strategy for 2013 can be viewed below.
