Community Safety Partnership Board (PB)
Unfortunately PB was unable to attend the last CSPB
PB explained the restructured Bradford District
Partnership which will now just meet once a year for
an AGM. The Community Safety Partnership Board is
a statutory requirement and will continue (although
this may change in the future). It is mainly a reporting
meeting. Below this Board sits three theme groups
which are more like task and finish groups:
Neighbourhoods and Resources, Drugs and Alcohol
and Reducing Crime and Reoffending. There are also
other sub partnership boards such as the Domestic
The themed groups deliver Community Safety
