Safer Communities Torbay

Read the strategic assessments which aim to identify priorities for the Community Safety Partnership in their next plan.

Strategic Assessment

Every year the Community Safety Partnership, known as Safer Communities Torbay, produce a document called a Strategic Assessment. The Assessment is written for the Partnership Board (Stronger Communities Board) and aims to identify priorities for the Partnership in its next plan.

This assessment contains information to help us understand the priority crime and disorder issues impacting the safety of the people of Torbay. It also talks about what we have achieved in the last year, how we measure our effectiveness and some of the future challenges. The assessment also introduces some new areas of work and where we are in understanding and addressing them.

This assessment has a two-way relationship with the Peninsula Strategic Assessment (PSA). Content from this assessment will be included in the PSA while work undertaken as part of the PSA may be included in this assessment.

Peninsula Strategic Assessment

The Peninsula incorporates eight community safety partnerships (CSPs) and one strategic County level partnership, Safer Devon. Their statutory responsibilities and activities are set down within the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, but the partnerships essentially serve and respond to local needs and delivery structures and hence there are differences in the way that they work across the Peninsula.

Community Safety Strategy

The Community Safety Strategy is currently being reviewed and will be published after consultation with residents, businesses and other key stakeholders in Torbay.
