Safer Schools Partnerships

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent estimate he has made of the number of safer schools partnerships; and how many such partnerships are structured on the basis of a full-time officer based within a secondary school or college. (300298)

A survey of the number of Safer School Partnerships (SSPs) in England was carried out this summer following publication of guidance in May 2009 which tightened the definition of an SSP. The results of this survey are currently being verified by the Association of Chief Police Officers and therefore are not yet available.

Information on how many partnerships are structured on the basis of a full-time officer is not collected centrally.
