In carrying out his functions as Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Stephen Bett must have regard to the relevant priorities of authorities responsible for crime and policing, and those bodies have a reciprocal duty to have regard to the PCC. Stephen is fully committed to working in partnership with other organisations to support the delivery of his priorities, particularly when there is limited funding available and a need to share and use resources more effectively and efficiently.
Community Safety, tackling issues such as anti-social behaviour and domestic abuse, and protecting the vulnerable are not just matters for the police. Also involved are statutory organisations such as local councils, fire and rescue, Youth Offending Teams and voluntary organisations and community groups.
Stephen will constantly review the partnerships in which he and Deputy PCC Jenny McKibben participate. The following lists some of the partnerships in which the PCC currently participates, together with a brief summary of their purpose.
