To consider the report of the Cabinet Member
for Health and Community Safety seeking approval for an updated and
amended Safe City Strategy 2017-2020.
To consider and recommend to Council the updated Safe City Strategy 2017-20.
The Southampton Safe City Strategic Assessment has been used to review and update the data, actions and measures in the Safe City Strategy 2017-20. Undertaking a strategic needs assessment and revising the strategy in light of that evidence ensures that the Safe City Partnership is compliant with its statutory responsibility and there are clear actions to reduce crime and keep the people of Southampton safe.
An alternative option is to not update the strategy. However, this would risk the Safe City Partnership not meeting its statutory obligations to formulate and implement, for each relevant period, a strategy for the reduction of crime and disorder in the area. In turn, implementing a strategy with outdated data could negatively impact community safety in the city.
