Statutory Duties

Whilst CSPs can be responsible for a wide range of activity, the actual statutory obligations upon them are:

  • Set up a strategic group to direct the work of the partnership
  • Regularly engage and consult with the community about their priorities and progress achieving them
  • Set up protocols and systems for sharing information
  • Analyse a wide range of data, including recorded crime levels and patterns to identify priorities as part of an annual strategic assessment
  • Set up a partnership plan and monitor progress
  • Produce a strategy to reduce re-offending
  • Commission domestic violence homicide reviews
  • Prevent violent extremism and radicalisation locally by delivering the governments counter-terrorism strategy

Key Priorities

With over 300 CSPs across England and Wales, each one is different to reflect its own local priorities and the needs of their communities. At the beginning of each year the partnership uses information and data from partners, as well as feedback from local communities to help determine its priorities and work. This information is formalised and communicated through a document called a Strategic Assessment.

Key areas of our work include:

  • Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Problematic substance misuse
  • Reducing re-offending
  • Domestic abuse
  • Sexual violence
  • Stalking
  • Exploitation

There are also many other areas of activity which are just important in making Torbay safe.  See our work for more information on current and past activities and campaigns.
