About the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership
The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership (SLP) helps to improve community safety.
It aims to:
- reduce crime and improve the safety of people and their communities.
- ensure those living in, working in and visiting the county feel safe
- ensure that people are able to cope with any threats they may encounter
- improve communication between agencies so they can work effectively.
The work of the SLP involves tackling:
- anti-social behaviour
- domestic abuse
- offending and reoffending
- serious and organised crime
Its duties are to:
- set up protocols and systems for information sharing
- implement a plan to reduce offending and combat substance misuse
- engage and consult with communities and address their priorities
- hold one or more public meeting during each year
- commission domestic homicide reviews
Serious and organised crime
We are part of the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership. It focuses on two areas of serious and organised crime:
- modern day slavery
To find out more about modern day slavery, visit antislavery.org.
To report a concern, visit the modern slavery helpline website.
To find out more about fraud or report it, visit the Action Fraud website.
We support the Assisting Rehabilitation through Collaboration (ARC) partnership to help reduce crime.
ARC aims to reduce:
- the number of victims
- the harm caused by the most prolific and complex offenders
It brings together experts in health, criminal justice, social care and the third sector. It addresses with the causes of crime and not just the symptoms.
Domestic homicide reviews
All deaths which may be a result of domestic violence or abuse require a domestic homicide review.
The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership must carry these out.
Their purpose is to ensure that agencies are responding to victims of domestic violence appropriately.
They are not inquiries into who is culpable. That is for the court or coroner to decide.
