Policing and Community Safety Partnerships

PCSPs (Policing and Community Safety Partnerships) aim to make our community safer.

They are statutory bodies established under the Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 and they are funded jointly by the Department of Justice and the Northern Ireland Policing Board.

There are 11 partnerships, one for each council area.

Each PCSP has a Policing Committee, to take forward specific police monitoring and engagement functions, with the wider PCSP taking forward community safety related functions.

What we do?

Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP aims to make our community safer. We do this by focusing on the policing and community safety issues that matter most across the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council area.


  • consult and engage with the local community on the issues of concern in relation to policing and community safety. The Policing Committee has a distinct responsibility to provide views to the relevant district commander and the Policing Board on policing matters;
  • identify and prioritise the particular issues of concern and prepare plans for how these can be tackled;
  • monitor - a Policing Committee comprising the political and independent members will monitor the performance of the police and work to gain the co-operation of the public with the police in preventing crime; and
  • deliver a reduction in crime and enhance community safety in our area, directly through our own interventions, through the work of our delivery groups or through support for the work of others.


Getting involved

Community involvement is vitally important if we are to really deliver a safer society for all. Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP is keen to hear your views.

We will consult with those living and working in the borough, to find out your views on crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour, as well as local policing.

We plan to host public meetings in the future and these will be publicised locally.
