Whilst responsibility for community safety rests with PSNI and DoJ and other statutory agencies, including Belfast City Council administered Community Safety Partnership, these statutory providers have recognised the importance of engaging the private sector in service delivery.
Consequently the issues of a safer Belfast remain a key priority for Belfast City Centre Management with activity in this area managed by the Safer City Action Group.
The public and private sector stakeholders represented on the Safer City Action Group have agreed that they will work collaboratively to promote enhanced safety through:
Coordinating and developing Belfast City Centre Management’s existing crime reduction initiatives such as:
• Retail Crimewatch Scheme
• City Centre Beat Policing
• Emergency Contact Points
