Community safety

There are a range of comprehensive research projects which the Strategy Team lead to inform Community Safety strategy and commissioning. These are developed in close partnership with the Staffordshire Commissioner’s Office, Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, and city, district, and borough councils.

At the core of Community Safety research sit Community Safety Strategic Assessments; these reports bring together analysis and assessment of all potential Community Safety risks, and highlight those which should be considered a local priority.

Community Safety Strategic Assessments

Community Safety Strategic Assessments (CSSAs) are produced individually for the eight districts and boroughs in Staffordshire County and for the city of Stoke-on-Trent, with a further report which covers the entirety of Staffordshire County and Stoke-on-Trent. CSSAs are produced in three-year cycles, with a full assessment conducted in year one, and refresh reports issued in years two and three.

The latest full assessment was produced in 2019 with the latest refresh reports produced in 2021. The next full assessment is due to be produced in Autumn 2022.

Strategic Needs Assessments

In addition to the broader Strategic Assessments, the team also undertake thematic Needs Assessments focussing on specific elements of Community Safety.

In recent years these have included assessments focussing on Domestic Abuse, Safe Accommodation for Domestic Abuse Victims, Victims and Witnesses, and Rural Crime.

Domestic Abuse Needs Assessment

A Domestic Abuse Needs Assessment was undertaken in 2016 to inform the commissioning of a Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Domestic Abuse service.
