Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP)
What are PCSPs?
Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs) work to make communities safer, ensuring that the voices of local people are heard.
In Belfast we have an overarching Policing and Community Safety Partnership and four District Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (North, South, East and West).
Each partnership is made up of elected and independent members and representatives from the statutory sector.
We aim to build safer, shared and confident communities by:
- engaging and consulting to help improve policing and community safety
- working in partnership with local communities, partners and agencies
- monitoring our performance and being transparent about what we have achieved, and
- encouraging cooperation with, and inspiring confidence in, the justice system and, in particular the police.
To develop the 2019 - 2020 Action Plan, the PCSP carried out a strategic assessment which included a statistical audit and community consultation. Findings from our residents survey in early 2019 were then incorporated to produce a 2019 - 2022 Belfast PCSP Strategic Direction Report. This report will be used to inform the action planning process from 2020 onwards.
All PCSP events can be found in our events section.
Applications are now open for District Policing and Community Safety Partnership (DPCSP) Policing Committee grants for North and East Belfast.
Policing Committee Grants of up to £2,000 are available for groups who meet the criteria outlined within our guidance notes. Up to two grants can be provided per group, per year, however the projects must be different from each other.
