Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs)
Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs) are local bodies made up of Councillors and independent people from each Council area who work to make your community safer. They do this by focussing on the policing and community safety issues that matter most in your area.
These statutory bodies were established under the Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 and were set up on 1 April 2012.
They are funded jointly by the Board and the Department of Justice.
Please note that the term of the 26 PCSPs based in each council area completed on 31 March 2015. PCSPs are being structured in line with the new 11 council model which came into effect on 1 April 2015. Click here for more information.
