What we do?
Castlereagh PCSP Policing Committee works with local police to develop the local policing plan and monitor their performance against this plan.
The role of the Policing Committee is to carry out the following specific functions:
•to provide views to a relevant police commander and to the Policing Board on any matter concerning the district;
•to monitor performance of the police in carrying out the policing plan in the district; and
•to make arrangements for obtaining the co-operation of the public with the policing in preventing crime and enhancing community safety in the district.
Castlereagh PCSP will work with the community to identify issues of concern in the local area and potential solutions, and will prepare a plan to address these concerns. The focus of the plan will be on delivering practical solutions.
We also work in partnership with those organisations that have a contribution to make to enhancing community safety in our area.
Castlereagh PCSP has established engagement and delivery groups which meet at various times within the borough to identify community safety concerns. Forthcoming meetings are advertised on this site.
