Safer Communities Torbay is the name given to Torbay’s Community Safety Partnership (CSP).

Community Safety Partnerships exist by law (Crime and Disorder Act 1998) and bring key local agencies together to deliver multi-agency solutions to tackle various issues such as crime, re-offending, anti-social behaviour, and substance misuse in a coordinated and collective way.

We have a responsibility to work together to do all that we can to ensure that everyone who lives, works or visits Torbay are safe and feel safe.

Safer Communities Torbay is collectively made up of the following statutory agencies, also known as ‘responsible authorities’:

  • Torbay Council
  • Devon and Cornwall Police
  • Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service
  • Dorset, Devon and Cornwall Community Rehabilitation Company
  • National Probation Service
  • South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group
