Safer Peterborough Partnership Plan

The Safer Peterborough Partnership Plan outlines the partnership's priorities for 2017 - 2020 to improve community safety across Peterborough. We use an evidence-based approach to identify our priorities, we analysed crime and other data and conducted a survey to gather people's views about crime and anti-social behaviour. This helped us decide the areas to focus on in the partnership plan. 

Our priorities for 2017 - 2020 are:

  • Building Resilient Communities
  • Offender Management
  • Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence
  • Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour and Environmental Crime.

Safer Peterborough is committed to ensuring that any member of our community can have access to information in the Partnership Plan.

It is important you know:

  • The areas of business that we consider to be most important
  • What we are going to do to improve in these areas
  • How we will know if we have been successful

To ensure you have access to as much information, we will:

  • Publish a summary of the plan in easily understood language
  • Ensure the full plan is easily accessible to those who wish to see more detail than contained in the summary
  • Have available on a quarterly basis our performance against our targets
  • Hold at least two ‘Face the People’ consultation events to allow you to question the partnership about performance

Prevention and Enforcement Service

The Safer Peterborough Prevention and Enforcement Service combines council, police, fire service and prison staff into a single managed service. Council officers will wear a new uniform to help the public identify members of the service.

A total of 112 officers will make up the Prevention and Enforcement Service (PES) including 16 police constables, 30 police community support officers and 30 council prevention and enforcement officers.

The council PES officers have now been granted delegated Community Safety Accreditation Scheme powers which give them the ability to take action against a wider range of community issues which include littering, begging and cycling on pavements. These officers also retain existing powers available to them, including parking and housing enforcement.

The service will be structured into three localities covering the whole city council area. However, the main focus will be the city centre. 

To solve issues across the city, the best way is to prevent them from happening in the first place which will be achieved through regular patrols conducted by the PES officers. 

The public can report issues and concerns to the Prevention and Enforcement Service via the our reporting form or they can call 101 or 01733 747474 (999 should only be used in an emergency). Alternatively, you can tweet PES with any questions or report any issues you may have via Twitter @PeterboroughPES.
