Community safety

The Cambridgeshire Research Group supports each of the five Community Safety Partnerships (CSP) in Cambridgeshire with their research, monitoring and information needs.

For three of the partnerships we complete innovative quarterly strategic assessments on specific topic areas identified by the partners.  In the past we’ve undertaken studies on topics such as:

  • Child Sexual Exploitation
  • Street Drinking
  • Community Cohesion
  • Rural Crime
  • Anti-Social Behaviour
  • Aspects of Violent Crime

We also continue to complete annual strategic assessments for two partnerships.

The Cambridgeshire Atlas | Crime and community safety atlas provides crime and community safety data and analysis for Cambridgeshire and has now been updated to include data from 2007 to 2016.

The Cambridgeshire Research Group also undertakes bespoke crime and community safety analysis for anyone wishing to commission it.  In the past we’ve completed:

  • Evaluation of Integrated Offender Management Schemes
  • Victim Needs Assessment
  • Offender Needs Assessment
  • Analysis of Witnesses’ Experience of the Criminal Justice System
  • The only Systematic Evaluation of the Impact of Smart Water in the UK
