About Glasgow's Community Safety Partnership

What is community safety?

Community safety covers a range of issues including crime, antisocial behaviour, public perception of safety and safety in our homes and on our roads.

The Community Safety Partnership (CSP) brings together a number of agencies who work together to resolve many of the community safety issues that impact on Glasgow. The CSP has strategic responsibility for the delivery of Scottish Government’s National Outcome 9: ‘We live our lives from free from crime disorder and danger’.

The partnership is chaired by Assistant Chief Constable Ruaraidh Nicolson of Strathclyde Police and current membership includes:

  • Glasgow City Council
  • Glasgow Community and Safety Services
  • Glasgow Housing Association
  • Glasgow Life
  • Glasgow Community Planning partnership
  • NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
  • Strathclyde Fire and Rescue
  • Strathclyde Police
  • RoSPA

The current community safety priorities as determined by the CSP’s strategic assessment are as follows: 

  • Alcohol and drugs
  • Antisocial behaviour
  • Home safety
  • Violent crime including violence against women

 There are a number of websites dedicated to community safety. For further information please visit www.saferglasgow.com or the agency websites that form the community safety partnership.
