Our service provides leadership to Aberdeen Community Safety Partnership, the community planning partnership delivering the Safer and Stronger theme in the Local Outcome Improvement Plan (LOIP). The community safety partnership uses a strategic assessment process to identify the partnership's strategic priorities. This process involves detailed analysis of community safety themes and risk assessment to determine levels of priorities. Current priorities are as follows:
- Violence (including domestic abuse)
- Community fire safety
- Antisocial behaviour
- Commercial sexual exploitation
- Road safety
