Cabinet endorses latest Community Safety Plan

by Alison Cornmell

At tonight’s Cabinet Meeting (Wednesday 15 June), Members endorsed Knowsley’s Community Safety Partnership Strategic Plan.

The Strategic Plan aims to support victims of crime and their children, as well as tackling those who perpetrate crime.

It has been designed to build and further strengthen the relationship that Knowsley Council has with partners including Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, The Probation Service, and Knowsley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as well as Livv Housing Group, One Knowsley and The Office of the Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner.

The Knowsley Community Safety Partnership Strategic Plan 2022 – 2025 identifies six priorities to improve outcomes for the residents of Knowsley:-

  • Protecting vulnerable victims
  • Addressing the exploitation of children
  • Tackling Domestic Abuse
  • Tackling serious and organised crime
  • Addressing anti-social behaviour
  • Supporting offenders to change their behaviours.

A Knowsley Council spokesperson said:

“While most people in Knowsley have a good quality of life with minimal need for support from public services, there are some who may need assistance from community safety partner agencies.

“With our partners we can provide support at the right time to improve long-term outcomes for victims while also tackling and supporting perpetrators of crime to help change their behaviour.

“In line with the Knowsley Better Together principles, our plan builds on the strong partnership work that has been happening across Knowsley already and helps us build better and safer communities across the borough.”
