Safer Communities Torbay

Safer Communities Torbay is a Community Safety Partnership made up of statutory agencies. Community Safety Partnerships exist by law (the Crime and Disorder Act 1998) and their main job is to reduce crime and disorder, and to help make areas safer.

Safer Communities Torbay covers the three towns of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay.

The partnership works behind the scenes with a lot of agencies, third sector organisations and residents to help make Torbay safer.

The purpose of Safer Communities Torbay is to bring agencies, other organisations and residents together to reduce crime and disorder which it does by:

Changing the way things work - sometimes new approaches are needed to prevent or respond to crime and the partnership is always looking at how things could be differently.

Locality Tasking - using officers from different agencies to work together to tackle issues with residents.

Bringing the right people together - through groups like Torbay's Domestic Abuse Forum.

Running projects - responding to what communities need with projects and initiatives that tackle specific issues and improve areas.

Finding funding - bidding for funding from a variety of different sources so that money can be spent on making Torbay even safer.

Supporting neighbourhoods - sharing knowledge, information and advice with community groups who want to do their own work to tackle local issues.
