Policing and Community Safety Partnership

Untitled 1   Untitled 2


Welcome to Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP

Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs) are statutory bodies established in 2012 by the Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2011. They bring together the functions and responsibilities previously carried out by the District Policing Partnership (DPP) and Community Safety Partnership (CSP), building on the most useful and effective aspects of each, while operating in a more streamlined and joined up way.
The Department of Justice, the Northern Ireland Policing Board and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council fund Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP. The PCSP aims to improve community safety by tackling crime and anti-social behaviour and improve community confidence in policing. Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP also engages with local community and statutory groups to identify and address concerns in relation to community safety.

What is the role of PCSP?

Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP aims to make our community safer. We do this by focusing on crime, policing and community safety issues that matter most in the Fermanagh and Omagh district.

Who are we?

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council appoints ten political representatives to the Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP. The Northern Ireland Policing Board appoints nine Independent Members to the PCSP. The Department of Justice designates seven organisations who can make a positive contribution to the role of the PCSP. Designated organisations for Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP include; Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI), Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS), Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE), Youth Justice Agency (YJA), Education Authority Northern Ireland (EANI), Western Health and Social Care Trust (WHSCT) and the Probation Board Northern Ireland (PBNI).

Community Safety

Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP works with the community to identify issues of concern in the local area, identify potential solutions and prepares a plan to address these concerns. The focus of the plan is on delivering practical solutions. Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP also works in partnership with those organisations that have a contribution to make to enhancing community safety in our area.

Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP helps to build:

Safer communities – with lower levels of crime and anti-social behaviour.
Shared communities – where everyone’s rights are respected in a shared and cohesive community.
Confident communities – where people feel safe and have confidence in the agencies that serve them.

Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP:

Consults and engages – with the local community on the issues of concern in relation to policing and community safety.
Identifies and prioritises – the particular issues of concern and prepares plans on how these can be tackled.
Delivers – a reduction in crime and enhances community safety in our district, directly through our own interventions, through the work of our delivery groups or through support for the work of others.

Policing Committee

The PCSP has a Policing Committee comprising of political and independent members who will take forward specific police monitoring and  engagement functions.

Fermanagh and Omagh Policing Committee:

• Works with the local police to develop the Local Policing Plan.
• Provides views on local policing to the PSNI Area Commander and to the Northern Ireland Policing Board.
• Monitors the performance of the police against the Local Policing Plan and the Northern Ireland Policing Plan as it relates to the district.
• Works to gain the cooperation of the public with the police in preventing crime and enhancing community safety.

Community involvement is vitally important if we are to really deliver a safer society for everyone. Fermanagh and Omagh PCSP is keen to hear your views.
