What are 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 focusing 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.
Find out all you need to know about PCSPs by visiting the PCSP website.
