They work in partnership with a wide range of other services
across the public and voluntary sector and community groups that
contribute significantly to community safety. These other services
are known as co-operating authorities. The Crime and Disorder Act
1998 makes co-operating bodies key partners in the setting and
delivery of objectives.
Co-operating authorities provide data and information to improve
the understanding of local crime and disorder problems, thereby
benefitting the community and contributing to the core functions of
their respective organisations.
Co-operating authorities are:
Cross Keys Homes

The SaferPeterborough Board also invites others to join the
partnership on the basis that they can assist in the delivery of
goals. These are known as Invitees to Participate. This provides the
opportunity for the voluntary and community sector to be fully
engaged in the work of the partnership.

setting fires and asking them to be vigilant when out and about.
Please report any suspicious activity around fires to the Police on
