Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs)
Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) are partnerships between the emergency services, local authorities, and public, private and voluntary sector agencies that work together to reduce crime, disorder and substance misuse. They were formed as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and there are 376 such partnerships across England and Wales.
North East Lincolnshire (A Division) – Safer Communities
The Safer Communities Partnership in North East Lincolnshire is a statutory partnership set up to join the work of partners across the borough.
Responsible authorities have a statutory duty to work with each other and other local agencies and organisations to develop and implement strategies to tackle crime and disorder including anti-social and other behaviour that is affecting the local environment as well as the misuse of drugs in their area.
The Safer Communities Partnership in North East Lincolnshire is under a statutory duty to ensure that the key agencies come together to work in partnership, and carry out an audit of local crime, disorder and misuse of drugs every year. This is called the Joint Strategic Assessment.
The responsible authorities in North East Lincolnshire, as set out in section five of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 are:
- Humberside Police (A Division)
- Humberside Police Authority

North Lincolnshire (B Division) – Safer Communities
Safer Neighbourhoods is the CDRP for North Lincolnshire
The Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership was formerly known as the Community Safety Partnership. In April 2004, the partnership amalgamated with the North Lincolnshire Drug Action Team and assumed the additional responsibility for substance misuse (including drug and alcohol misuse). The new partnership is named the Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership in recognition of it's role as the Safer Neighbourhoods Action Group of the North Lincolnshire Local Strategic Partnership.
What We Do
Every three years safer Neighbourhoods has to:
- Conduct an audit of crime, disorder and substance misuse in North Lincolnshire. We do this by:
- Collecting information from the Police, Local Authority, Health Service and a broad range of other sources
- Conducting surveys of local residents
- Analysing the information collected to ensure that the Partnership's perception of crime reflects public views as well as recorded statistics
- Devise and implement a strategy containing measures to tackle those priority issues identified
The Safer Neighbourhoods Team
The Safer Neighbourhoods Team is based at Shelford House, Shelford Street Scunthorpe. We are a small team of people who work in partnership with police, fire, health and other key agencies, including voluntary groups, to develop Project Teams and Task Groups aimed at deterring crime and disorder.
East Riding of Yorkshire (C Division) – The East Riding of Yorkshire Safe Communities Partnership
Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP)
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 requires 'responsible authorities' i.e. Local Authority, Police, Police Authority, Health, Fire Service to co-operate and collaborate in order to:
- Produce an audit of levels of crime and disorder in the area
- Develop a local strategy to tackle the problems identified in the audit
- Consult with households regarding their concerns
Together with other partner agencies, the 'responsible authorities' form a "Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership" (CDRP), described locally as the East Rising of Yorkshire Safe Communities Partnership. The Partnership works together to reduce the incidence of crime and disorder, tackle the underlying causes and achieve a permanent improvement to the quality of life in our local community.
