Minutes:

The committee considered the report which provided an overview of the performance of the Strategic Safer North Hampshire Community Partnership.

 

The Chair of the CSP introduced the report and highlighted the timeframe and priorities of the review.   He stated that priorities for 2018/19 were informed by issues identified in the Strategic Assessment 2017/18 and those priorities linked with the Police and Crime Plan priorities to work as a partnership rather than looking at the specific work of each partner.  He stated that the report had been changed this year to provide partner priority feedback proformas which set out how each partner had contributed with the work they achieved against the Safer North Hampshire priorities which would assist the committee to scrutinise the partnership as a whole rather than individual agencies.

 

The committee discussed the Strategic Assessment 2018/19.

 

Comment was made that it was not clear how successful the 2018/19 strategy had been as whilst information had been provided to capture the work that had been undertaken there was no data for the later period. In order to scrutinise the whole cycle, the committee needed to know what the achievements were.

 

Officers clarified that the data was compared to during the 18/19 strategic assessment where it looked back and the 18/19 proforma was reviewed.  It was suggested that it would be useful to provide an update on the data currently available compared to past data.

 

The Community Safety Manager explained the process for gathering and analysing the data from a broad range of agencies to inform the priorities of the CSP for the coming year where recommendations would be made on successes in the past.  She explained that it was the first year that the agencies had provided proformas which could be used to look back to measure outcomes and success and which could be used to inform the strategic assessment in future years and measure how successful it had been. 

 

Comment was raised about the length of time that the data referred to and it was suggested that more recent data could be provided such as the monthly updates that each authority received for its area.

 

It was explained that a complete cycle of data capture, data review, assessing the priorities and review of the delivery was necessary to fully scrutinise the whole process. Officers agreed to investigate the possibility of an interim assessment that could inform the scrutiny of the full year cycle.

 

The Community Safety Manager explained that the assessment was a document that enabled a response to intelligence rather than any other means.  The identified priorities year on year were similar.  The monthly updates were a means to identify current trends that needed to be responded to.  The Chair of the CSP suggested that data could be provided as part of the measurable outcomes on each of the proformas which would provide a trend and identify whether action that had been taken had an impact or a narrative to explain the data.
