A report examining the issues faced by public and private sector organisations working in partnership to improve community safety has been drawn up by the council.
The Derbyshire County Council report looks at the work of numerous public and voluntary sector organisations working in partnership to improve community safety across the county.
It concludes that the pressures experienced by these agencies have changed in recent times. Public organisations have had to adjust to ongoing budget reductions and voluntary agencies have had to compete for funds. The situation is further compounded by changes in the nature of crime.
