Our Research

How research influences our plans

Every year the Safer Portsmouth Partnership undertakes a strategic assessment of crime and anti-social behaviour in Portsmouth.

This detailed research document provides a summary of all the research relating to crime and anti-social behaviour and helps us to set and revise our plans.

The research we carry out in the strategic assessment helps us:

  • Check the Partnership’s current priorities and identify any emerging issues
  • Provide a better understanding of local issues and community concerns
  • Provide knowledge of what is driving the problems to help identify appropriate responses
