Crime & Community Safety

The Safer Croydon Partnership (SCP) acts as the statutory Community Safety Partnership for Croydon as stipulated by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The SCP is responsible for co-ordinating the development and implementation of Croydon’s Community Safety Strategy. The Partnership comprises public sector agencies, businesses, community and voluntary sector organisations.

Community safety initiatives aim to reduce offending behaviour and reduce the negative impact of crime and anti-social behaviour on both individuals and local communities. By adopting a problem solving multi-agency approach as well as tackling the fear of crime and perceptions of safety, we can increase tangible outcomes for individuals and local communities.
