The Community Safety team manages the council’s response to incidents of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour. The team also reports to the Huntingdonshire Community Safety Partnership (HCSP). The HCSP was created under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and aims to tackle crime, disorder and anti-social behavior. Members of the HCSP are:

  • Cambridgeshire Constabulary

  • Cambridgeshire County Council

  • Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Services

  • Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust

  • Huntingdonshire District Council

  • Probation Service.

A number of other organisations attend HCSP meetings as invited members, including Link to Change, the Crown Prosecution Service and Luminus Homes.

The HCSP’s current priorities are:

  • identifying and supporting vulnerable people

  • identifying and responding to issues in vulnerable places

  • targeting those who cause most harm

  • targeting matters that are of most concern to our communities.

The HCSP commissions Cambridgeshire County Council’s Crime Research team to produce quarterly Strategic Assessments that focus on the HCSP’s priorities.
