The Safer Bromley Partnership was set up in line with the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 to ensure that the public sector agencies, voluntary groups and businesses work together with local communities to reduce crime and improve safety.
Members of the SBP include chief officers from the Council, Police, Health, Probation, Fire Service, Ambulance Service, Metropolitan Police Authority and Affinity Sutton. The SBP is chaired by the Portfolio Holder for Public Protection and Enforcement.
The Safer Bromley Partnership is committed to continuously improve safety in Bromley. We want a borough where people can live, work, play and learn safely.
In seeking to achieve this vision the partnership has established the following 4 aims which all the partner agencies will work towards.
- To increase public confidence that Bromley is becoming a safer place.
- To reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and the harm caused by drugs and alcohol.
- To have safer, well-maintained public spaces and town centres.
- Work in partnership with local communities in high crime areas and empower local communities in local decision-making.
In meeting the aims of the Strategy, the Partnership has identified the key priorities
- reducing crimes against the person
- reducing property related crime
- reducing anti-social behaviour
- reducing problematic drug and alcohol use
- reduce youth crime and victimisation
- increase community reassurance and engagement
