The role of Government is to protect its citizens, keep communities safe and help them to feel safe and secure, including though tackling and reducing crime.

Outcome 7 in the draft Programme for Government (PfG) - We have a safe community where we respect the law and each other – sets out the strategic focus in relation to creating safer environments, where people feel safe and protected in their communities and have the confidence they need to live productively and engage fully in society.

The purpose of the Community Safety Framework is to ensure effective connectivity between the community safety work of the responsible agencies and provide an operational roadmap on how to collectively deliver the safer community objectives set out in the PfG and Community Plans, whilst providing the mechanism to respond proactively and reactively to operational need.
