What we do with your feedback
The Cherwell District has had a reduction in violent crime of 18%, a reduction in burglary dwelling of 19% and an all crime reduction of 5.67% compared with last year's figures. This means we have been in a state of continuous reduction since 2006.
Cherwell Safer Communities Partnership (CSCP) is tasked with delivering priorities and targets. It is our vision to address these issues over the next two years with an end-to-end approach to cutting crime, focusing on intervention, enforcement and reduction of re-offending. Our priorities are shown below:
- Reduce anti-social behaviour
- Reduce crimes such as theft and burglary
- Reduce violence
- Reduce young people offending
CSCP currently comprises representatives from the six responsible authorities:
- Cherwell District Council
- Thames Valley Police Authority
- Oxfordshire County Council
- Thames Valley Police
- Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service
Representatives from each meet quarterly to discuss the progress in the priorities set out in the strategy. Each priority has an action plan which has actions and targets set at national, regional and local level.
CSCP in turn reports to Oxfordshire Safer Communities Partnership.
