Community safety

We work with many different organisations to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour. These include North Yorkshire Police, housing associations, the fire service, probation services and health and social care organisations. We meet regularly as part of the Safer Selby Hub to review cases, initiatives and plans. We also have access to countywide community safety services and can facilitate projects to reduce crime and disorder as well as work towards Prevent Duty. 

The North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership

The North Yorkshire Community Safety Partnership takes the strategic lead for statutory responsibilities. It brings together the responsible authorities, supported by other relevant organisations, to fulfil their statutory responsibilities to work together in accordance with the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

Each district has a Local Delivery Team (LDT) and the Safer Selby Hub is the LDT for the Selby district. The purpose of the Local Delivery Team is to bring together the operational managers of the responsible authorities, supported by other relevant organisations, to coordinate and ensure the delivery of the North Yorkshire Community Safety Plan.
