Mansfield Community Partnership engage with communities, provide education, information and reassurance about crime, and work to help reduce anti-social behaviour.
MCP's members include:
- Mansfield District Council
- Nottinghamshire Police (opens in new window)
- Nottinghamshire County Council (opens in new window)
- Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service (opens in new window).
MCP member organisations including Mansfield's Police Inspector Nick Butler, Partnership Sergeants Neil Priestley and Andy Doran, Mansfield's PCSOs and our Community Safety team are now located in ‘The Hub’ at the Mansfield Civic Centre to make collaborative working more effective.
How does it work?
MCP’s focused areas are decided by recorded crime, incident figures and information from other sources. Dealing with issues that arise in the focus areas are part of the day to day work of the Community Partnership.
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.
We work 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 us 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 in the Data Protection, Freedom of Information and Transparency section of our 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 (such as, the causes of issues rather than the effects of them).
- Involving a wider range of partners to help provide improved services.
