  2. exercise the functions of the statutory Community Safety Partnership for South Gloucestershire;
  3. encourage, support and propose actions that will help achieve the agreed aims set out in the South Gloucestershire Sustainable Community Strategy namely to:
    – reduce crime, the harm caused by illegal drugs and alcohol and to reassure the public, reducing the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour and improve safety in homes and public spaces.
    – empower local people to have a greater voice and influence over local decision-making and the delivery of services by increasing the strength, capacity and engagement of local communities to create local solutions
    – improve the quality of life for these people in existing and new communities in greatest need through targeted service delivery.
