The Craigavon Policing & Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) was established on 1st April 2012. PCSPs are statutory bodies established under the Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 and bring together, in one partnership, the functions and responsibilities of District Policing Partnerships (DPPs) and Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) , building on the most useful and effective aspects of each, while operating in a more streamlined and joined up way.
The PCSP aims to improve Community Safety by tackling crime and anti-social behaviour and also improve community confidence in policing. The PCSP will continue to engage with local community and statutory groups to identify and address concerns in relation to community safety.
They are funded jointly by the Department of Justice and the Northern Ireland Policing Board.
Each PCSP also has a Policing Committee to take forward specific police monitoring and engagement functions, with the wider PCSP taking forward community safety related functions.
