The setting up of the Partnership Office at Derwen House in Court Road Bridgend enhances and provides a base from which partner agencies can share knowledge and experience and develop joint working.
Community Safety is no longer simply a police matter; crime reduction is the responsibility of everyone. Since 1998 the Safer Bridgend Community Safety Partnership has involved various agencies from the public, private and voluntary sector working together to reduce crime, disorder and fear of crime locally. By tackling the real concerns of individuals and communities we aim to improve the quality of life of local communities and create a safer living and working environment for those who live in, work in and visit the county borough.
