To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what data her Department hold on the performance of Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships. (254480)

We do not have a rolling programme for collecting data on the performance of Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs). Following a review of the partnerships provisions of the Crime and Disorder 1998 Act, the duties on CDRPs to produce three yearly audits and to report annually to the Secretary of State on a partnership’s work and progress were repealed in 2007. They were replaced by new statutory requirements in 2007 to introduce minimum standards for partnership working based on six Hallmarks of Effective Partnerships. These include a duty on CDRPs to produce a strategic assessment identifying local community safety priorities and a partnership plan which sets out the approach for addressing these priorities.
