Policing and Community Safety


What is the Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP)??

Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP works to help make communities safer and ensuring that the voices of local people are heard on local policing and community safety issues.  The aim is to empower communities to develop solutions in partnership to tackle crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour.

What Does The PCSP Do?

Many community safety issues cannot be resolved in isolation, Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP brings together partners from statutory agencies, communities and other groups to discuss, agree and co-ordinate actions in response to issues of concern. This makes a real difference on the ground.  The PCSP aims to improve community safety by:

  • Engaging and consulting with local people to help improve policing and community safety
  • Identifying and prioritising issues of concern and working in partnership to tackle these issues
  • Monitor the performance of police and work to gain the co-operation of the public in preventing crime
  • Delivering a range of programmes or interventions in partnership with local communities and partner agencies to enhance community safety by impacting on crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour
Who are the PCSP?

Antrim and Newtownabbey PCSP is made up of elected and independent members as well as representatives from statutory bodies.
