Community Safety Partnerships

The Community Safety Partnership manages crime and public safety issues. It makes sure agencies work together with communities to tackle crime and increase community safety which are important concerns for residents and businesses.

Our priorities are tackling:

  • domestic violence, sexual violence and exploitation
  • youth violence
  • the impact of the night time economy on communities
  • antisocial behaviour
  • hate crime, preventing extremism and building community cohesion

Other organisations

The partnership is made up of lots of organisations, including:

Camden Safer Neighbourhoods

Safer Neighbourhoods is a truly local policing style: local people working with local police and partners to identify and tackle issues of concern in their neighbourhood.

Each of Camden's 18 wards has a dedicated Safer Neighbourhoods team with a minimum of six uniformed officers comprising one sergeant, two constables and three police community support officers (PCSOs).

The team, with the community and partner agencies, tackles locally identified issues - such as graffiti, abandoned cars, noisy neighbours, drunks and vandalism.

Except for a very serious event, such as a terrorist-related event, Safer Neighbourhoods officers will stay where the public needs them most - right on their own doorsteps.

How can I get involved?

Safer Neighbourhoods panels meet regularly to discuss local community safety concerns and to decide which to address first. Local people are needed to sit on the panels. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the relevant Safer Neighbourhoods Team.

Remember, in an emergency always dial 999.

Camden Business Against Crime (CBAC)

What is CBAC?

Crime and the fear of crime have such a negative effect on the quality and use of our town centres. This is why we are taking action across the borough to ensure we remain competitive, safe and secure, for the businesses, their staff, their customers and residents. CBAC is a dedicated partnership which gives businesses the necessary tools to help reduce crime and antisocial behaviour.

CBAC provides the following:

  • access to photographs of the most prolific, current and active individuals involved in crime, disorder and antisocial behaviour
  • a radio link to notify CCTV and other users of incidents occurring to allow them to monitor the situation and take appropriate action
  • an Exclusion Notice scheme barring persistent offenders and troublemakers from all members’ premises  
  • evidence from incident reports which can be used to apply for Anti-Social Behaviour Orders

CBAC currently operates in several areas of Camden, and is actively expanding. If you are interested in discussing the benefits of working with CBAC in your area.
