Community safety partnership

Thurrock Community Safety Partnership

Thurrock Community Safety Partnership has a duty by law to reduce crime, disorder, anti-social behaviour and related behaviours affecting the local environment, including misuse of drugs and alcohol.

Our priorities for 2023/24 are:

  • tackling the disproportion of violence against women and girls – including sexual offences, stalking and rape, whilst recognising that men and boys can also be victims
  • breaking the cycle of domestic abuse – in line with duties under the Domestic Abuse Act 2021
  • violence and vulnerability – tackling gang-related activity and offensive weapons to reduce drug-driven violence
  • reducing harm to, and safeguarding, victims from hate crime
  • tackling community based anti-social behaviour and safeguarding victims – including response to car cruising
  • counter-extremism and counter-terrorism – preventing violent extremism locally
  • human trafficking, modern day slavery and organised immigration crime
  • safer streets through increased visibility and community engagement
  • tackling offending – reducing offences in relation to theft, predominantly burglary and vehicle crime

These priorities were informed by our strategic assessment 2022, which identifies the scale and scope of crime, disorder and community safety issues within Thurrock

Our priorities are aligned with those of the Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.
