Safer North Ayrshire Partnership (SNAP)
All of our residents want to feel North Ayrshire is a safe and secure place to live in. The Safer North Ayrshire Partnership (SNAP) is responsible for ensuring we achieve this aim. The Partnership helps develop and deliver on action plans that the Community Planning Partnership has set and makes sure that all relevant partners are work together on shared issues. SNAP also sets up and monitors sub-groups and short life working groups on specific work-streams when necessary and will works together to find the resources to carry out the work that is needed.
Some key members of Safer North Ayrshire Partnership are the Alcohol and Drugs Partnership, the Adult Protection Committee, Ayrshire College, Police Scotland, The Third Sector Interface, The Procurator Fiscal’s Office, NHS Ayrshire and Arran, North Ayrshire Women’s Aid, Scottish Fire and Rescue, Victim Support, KA Leisure, and The South West Scotland Criminal Justice Authority.
The Safer North Ayrshire Partnership…
achieves a lot to help local communities.
The first video below shows Superintendent Ross explaining the benefits for Police Scotland of being part of the North Ayrshire Community Planning Partnership and SNAP.
The second video is a good example of what SNAP can achieve. This is an Environmental and Visual Audit that took place in Beith, when Local People got together with the Police, North Ayrshire Council Services (such as Streetscene, Housing and Antisocial Behaviour Team) and the Fire Service to explore their own communities and find areas for improvement. If you are interested in being involved in this type of audit in your local area please contact us for more information.
In this last video, Executive Director of Education & Youth Employment John Butcher speaks about the re-introduction of campus police officers into six of our high schools in North Ayrshire and the positive relationships developed between Police, pupils, staff and the community.
