Ceredigion residents are invited to ‘Have their say!’ at the next Joint Community Safety Public Meeting on Thursday 16 June 2016 from 7pm , in the Council Chamber, Penmorfa, Aberaeron.
The meeting will be held in conjunction with Dyfed-Powys Police and the Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service, with senior representatives from the Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership in attendance, the meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for the public to play their part in shaping future policing and community safety priorities for Ceredigion. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Miss Bronwen Morgan, Chief Executive of Ceredigion County Council and Chair of the Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership said: “During the meeting there will be short presentations by organisations within the partnership, followed by an opportunity for the public to raise any specific issues or concerns they may have in their communities.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

In 1998, The Crime and Disorder Act placed a duty on Local Authorities and the Police to form a partnership to reduce crime and disorder in their communities. The Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership, comprises several representatives from various organisations across the county, and is currently carrying out an Assessment of crime and disorder related issues within the County. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The purpose of the Assessment is to provide knowledge and understanding of community safety problems that will inform and enable the Community Safety Partnership to understand the trends and changes relating to crime and disorder and Substance Misuse, set clear and robust priorities, develop activity to meet the needs of the local community and deploy resources effectively and present value for money. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Assessment will also be utilised to inform the Public Service Board’s Single Integrated Plan and other related plans and initiatives. The Partnership has already undertaken public consultation by distributing questionnaires throughout the County to a wide variety of Organisations and Individuals and displayed the questionnaire on the County Council Website. This consultation closed in February 2016. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Ceredigion Community Safety Partnership comprises Ceredigion County Council, Police and a representative from the Dyfed-Powys Police & Crime Panel, Fire & Rescue Service and the Fire & Rescue Authority, National Probation Service and the Wales Community Rehabilitation Company, Hywel Dda University Health Board, Public Health Service, Youth Justice Prevention Service, and Area Planning Board for Substance Misuse. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
