Feeling Safe in Our Borough 

Antrim and Newtownabbey Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) is one of eleven Policing and Community Safety Partnerships established under the Justice Act (NI) 2011 and is aligned to the Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council area. The aim is to empower communities to develop solutions in partnership to tackle crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour. 

The PCSP aims to improve community safety by:

  • Engaging and consulting with local people to help improve policing and community safety
  • Identifying and prioritising issues of concern and working in partnership to tackle these issues
  • Monitoring the performance of police and work to gain the co-operation of the public in preventing crime
  • Delivering a range of programmes or interventions in partnership with local communities and partner agencies to enhance community safety by impacting on crime, fear of crime and anti-social behaviour
