Consultation on making County Durham a safer place

We wanted your views on how we intend to keep County Durham a safe place to live, work and visit.

We are reviewing the responses received and an update will be published here when available.


We are responsible for working together with organisations such as the police, fire and rescue service and NHS to help to improve safety and reduce crime, disorder, anti-social behaviour and substance misuse in the county.

The Safe Durham Partnership Plan 2020-25 sets out what things we're going to focus on to make the county safe.

Safe Durham Partnership Plan

Covering the next five years, it allows enough time for the things we bring in to start to make a difference. Our priorities are to:

  • promote being safe and feeling safe in the community
  • support victims and protect vulnerable people from harm
  • prevent terrorism, radicalisation and violent extremism
  • reduce re-offending
  • reduce alcohol and substance misuse
  • reduce and prevent cyber crime

We are aware that a lot can change even in a year, so the plan will be monitored to reflect changes on a local level, in laws and national policies, the economy and emerging threats. It will also be reviewed to make sure it fits in to the County Durham Vision and ensure that its priorities align.

Have your say

We want to hear from you so that we know if we are tackling the issues that most affect you.

The deadline for comments was 5.00pm on Friday 14 February 2020.

What happens next

Your recommendations will be used to update the Plan, which will then be approved by the Safe Durham Partnership.
