Powys Community Safety Partnership
Community Safety Partnerships were formed following the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. The Act made it a statutory duty for each local authority area to have a Community Safety Partnership.
Domestic homicide review
Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) are required by law and are the responsibility of the Community Safety Partnership (CSP). The purpose of a DHR is to consider the circumstances that led to the domestic violence homicide. This will enable public bodies, community and voluntary sector organisations identify where responses to the situation could have been improved.
