Our Policing and Crime Plan

Safer Sandwell Partnership logo

The Safer Sandwell Partnership Police and Crime Board is many organisations working together to make sure you feel safe, protected and confident in your home and neighbourhood.

Police, council, fire, health and probation services – week in, week out, we are tackling crime and disorder, responding to local issues and dealing with new problems as they arise.

We work very closely with the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, local voluntary organisations and councillors to set our priorities.

With fewer resources across all partners, we are focusing on the things that matter most to you and your community and working ever more closely at a neighbourhood level.

Read how we're tackling what matters most to you in our Safer Sandwell review.

Our priorities for the year ahead (2016/17):

Safer Sandwell Partnership priorities for 2016-17

We will:

  • intervene early, to stop problems getting worse and quickly deal with perpetrators;
  • use intelligence to understand the underlying causes of crime and disorder; and
  • share information to prevent and reduce crime and protect victims.
  • Deliver Safer 6 campaigns in spring, summer, autumn and winter

We'll also be tackling new and emerging issues – including road safety, strengthening the local economy, cyber-crime and hidden crimes, such as modern day slavery and child sexual exploitation.

Members of the Safer Sandwell Partnership Police and Crime Board will regularly check how well partners are doing on this year's plan and, where necessary, hold them to account.
