Safe In Warwickshire is a collection of partner agencies, who are members of the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board. We work collaboratively to address crime and safety priorities, and to provide support for victims and survivors of crime and disorder across Warwickshire.
The Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board aims to create safer communities through the reduction of crime and the promotion of safety, with a focus on three key strategic ambitions:
- Address the causes of violence
- Tackle discrimination in all its forms
- Safe, Healthy and Empowered communities.
The community safety ambitions for Warwickshire and how we will work together to address these are identified in the Warwickshire Community Safety Agreement 2022-26.
The Board has agreed the following vision to underpin the agreement:
"Working together to prevent harm and protect the most vulnerable to create safe, healthy, and empowered communities"
The Warwickshire Community Safety Agreement for 2022-26 was approved by the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board (SWPB) at its meeting in March 2022.
Serious Violence Duty
The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act 2022 introduces a new statutory requirement referred to as the Serious Violence Duty. In preparation for this new duty and to fully address the causes of violence, Warwickshire partners have adopted a new Serious Violence Prevention Strategy.
Domestic Homicide Reviews
Domestic Homicide Reviews are a statutory requirement and are conducted when the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse, or neglect by a relative, household member or someone they had been in an intimate relationship with.
