Safer Buckinghamshire Strategy

The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 placed a duty on the police and local authorities to work together with key partners and organisations to develop and implement local crime-reduction strategies.

The Safer Buckinghamshire Partnership is committed to ensuring that Buckinghamshire continues to be one of the safest places to grow up, raise a family, live, work and do business.

From 2023 to 2026 we'll work hard together to deliver on that commitment. Our Safer Buckinghamshire Strategy sets out the areas we've prioritised to tackle over this period.

The priorities in this strategy are informed by an in-depth analysis of data from a range of community safety agencies contained in the Partnership Strategic Assessment, along with the views of people living and working within Buckinghamshire.

Our 2023 to 2026 priorities are:

  • neighbourhood crime
  • anti-social behaviour
  • serious violence
  • violence against women and girls
  • exploitation of vulnerable people

Underpinning these 5 priorities are common themes that are applicable to any or all the priorities to some extent:

  • Covid-19 recovery
  • drugs and alcohol
  • offending
  • levelling up

The nature of crime and anti-social behaviour and the impact upon individuals and our communities are constantly evolving. As a partnership we must evolve our response by continuing to listen, learn, improve and develop our approach and our ways of working.

We recognise we can only achieve our vision with our communities. With community involvement, we'll be better able to protect individuals and property and make our neighbourhoods even safer.
