Declarations of Interest
No declarations of interest were made.
The Committee considered the Dartford and Gravesham Community Safety Strategic Assessment 2014 completed by Gravesham’s Community Safety Unit (CSU) on behalf of the Joint Community Safety Partnership (CSP).
The assessment is provided to the Crime and Disorder Scrutiny Committee in order that Members can be aware of the process that has been followed and the data upon which decisions have been taken in identifying the new key priorities for the forthcoming financial year.
The priorities that will form the basis of Partnership activity in 2015/16 (all deemed
equally important) are:-
• violent crime and domestic abuse;
• anti-social behaviour (incorporating criminal damage relating to ASB);
• acquisitive and property crime;
• substance misuse;
• reducing re-offending;
• road safety.
These priorities are closely aligned to those of the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner and those that will be contained in County-wide community safety planning.
The Committee considered each priority in turn, in response to Members questions, the following information was provided:-
Violent crime and domestic abuse
Anti-social behaviour (incorporating criminal damage relating to ASB)
Acquisitive and property crime
Counter Terrorism and Extremism
