Partnership Structure

Find out more about the structure of the Community Safety Partnership in Torbay.

The Safer Torbay Board

The Safer Torbay Board is our Community Safety Partnership and is chaired by a representative from one of the responsible authorities. The board meet quarterly and is attended by senior representatives from the statutory members and key partner agencies. The role of the board is to understand the known and emerging risks and needs in Torbay and develop a sustainable multi-agency response to support the identified shared priorities to enable positive and impactful outcomes for the Torbay community.


Achieving improving community safety depends on everyone working together to find local solutions to local problems.  In addition to our statutory partners, we also work closely with a wide range of public sector, voluntary, community and private organisations. Below is a list of just a few non-statutory organisations we work with:

  • Torbay and Devon Safeguarding Adults Partnership
  • Torbay Safeguarding Children Partnership
  • Torbay Youth Justice Service
  • Prison & Probation Service
  • Victim Support
  • Police and Crime Commissioner Devon and Cornwall
  • Trading Standards
  • Street Pastors
  • Best bar None
  • Standing Tall

Devon and Cornwall Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC)

Although not a ‘responsible authority’ under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, Police and Crime Commissioners work closely with Community Safety Partnerships to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

You can find out more about the PCC on the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall website.
