Mansfield Community Partnership exists to engage with communities, provide education, information and reassurance about crime, and to work to help reduce anti-social behaviour. Formerly known as Mansfield Partnership Against Crime it is based on the Community Safety Partnership for Mansfield.
MPAC's members include:
Mansfield District Council
Using recorded crime and incident figures as well as information from other sources, areas for MCP members to focus on are decided. The areas which our Local Area Partnerships will concentrate on in the next year are expected to be: Carr Bank, Oak Tree, Bellamy and the Town Centre.
Dealing with issues that arise in the focus areas are part of the day to day work of the Community Partnership. To help make this work easier we are bringing people from different organisations together in a single workplace called "The Hub".
The Hub will be sited in the Council Offices at the Civic Centre. It is expected to be ready by September 2016, at which point Mansfield's Police Inspector Nick Butler, Partnership Sergeants Neil Priestley and Andy Doran, and all of Mansfield's PCSOs will move in with members of the Community Safety team. Staff from other departments and agencies are expected to move to The Hub as time goes on.
For more details see the Partnership Plan 2014/2017 Annual Refresh (2015/2016) [557kb].
The Council works in partnership with other organisations (statutory and non-statutory) to enable them to effectively safeguard vulnerable individuals and take enforcement action against perpetrators of crime and disorder.
Personal information held by the Council may be disclosed to and/or requested from statutory organisations such as other local authorities, the police, the fire service, National Probation Service or Derbyshire Leicestershire Nottinghamshire Rutland Community Rehabilitation Company Ltd (DLNR CRC) and/or General Practitioners (GPs) and non-statutory organisations such as registered social landlords, charities and organisations that offer support. More information about sharing personal data, requesting information or complaints can be found on the Freedom of Information and Data Protection section on the Council's website.
Our work is currently changing to have much more community focus. As we move forwards, the main points driving our activity will be:
Reaching out to existing stakeholder groups within the communities concerned
Greater community involvement in the work
Locating core partners together in a "hub"
Dealing with risk (i.e. the causes of issues rather than the effects of them).
Involving a wider range of partners to help provide improved services
