Published: 13th August 2015

The first meeting of the Fermanagh and Omagh Policing and Community Safety Partnership took place on Monday 27 July in Trillick Leisure Centre. The Policing and Community Safety Partnership is now structured in line with the new Fermanagh and Omagh District Council area.

The Policing and Community Safety Partnership will work with the community to identify issues of concern within the Fermanagh and Omagh district in relation to policing and community safety and prepare a plan to address these concerns. The focus of the Partnership’s work will be on delivering practical solutions. It will also work in partnership with organisations which contribute to the enhancement of community safety in the area.

The Partnership is made up of ten elected members, nine independent members and representatives from seven designated organisations including the Police Service of Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the Probation Board for Northern Ireland, the Youth Justice Agency of Northern Ireland, the Western Health and Social Care Trust, the Education Authority; and the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.

Commenting after the first meeting, Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh Policing and Community Safety Partnership, Councillor Sorcha McAnespy, said:

“I hope that as a collective we can work together to increase community safety in our area, engage effectively with the community and address policing and community safety issues that are important locally.”
