East Riding Community Safety Partnership

We work in partnership to help people in the East Riding of Yorkshire feel safe in their homes, in the streets and the places they go.

We do this by working together to:

  • keep people safe from harm
  • prevent and reduce offending
  • create safer, stronger communities.

Our shared strategic priorities are to:

  • support victims and protect vulnerable people from harm
  • reduce reoffending
  • tackle and prevent cyber-crime, fraud, and scamming
  • promote being safe and feeling safe in your community
  • counter terrorism and radicalisation
  • reduce alcohol and substance use.

The East Riding Community Safety Partnership is made up of:

  • Humberside Police
  • East Riding of Yorkshire Council
  • Humberside Fire and Rescue Service
  • The Probation Service ( Hull and East Riding)
  • NHS Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board (ICB)

In addition to these bodies the following groups and organisations are members of the East Riding Community Safety Partnership:

Community Safety Partnership Strategy

The East Riding Community Safety Partnership Strategy sets out the vision for the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour across the East Riding by reducing violence and exploitation, supporting victims and vulnerable people, building strong and resilient communities, and improving the safety of public spaces.

The current strategy covers the period from 2023 to 2026 and outlines how the CSP will work with partners and residents to deliver these priorities, and how they will measure their progress and impact.

Domestic Homicide Reviews

Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) were established on a statutory basis under section 9 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 and came into force on 13 April 2011.

Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) are responsible for undertaking DHRs where the death of a person aged 16 or over has, or appears to have, resulted from violence, abuse, or neglect by:

  • a relative
  • a household member
  • someone he or she has been in an intimate relationship with.

A review panel, led by an independent chair and consisting of representatives from statutory and voluntary agencies is commissioned to undertake the DHR. The panel reviews each agency's involvement in the case and makes recommendations to improve responses in the future. The panel also consider information from the victim's:

  • family
  • friends
  • work colleagues.

DHRs are not enquiries into how someone died or who is to blame or whether they form part of a disciplinary process. They do not replace, but are in addition to, an inquest and any other form of enquiry into a homicide.

The Purpose of a DHR is to consider the circumstances that led to the death and to identify where responses to the situation could be improved in the future. Lessons learned from the reviews help agencies to improve their response to domestic abuse and to work better together to prevent such tragedies from occurring again.

The Home Office has published statutory guidance on how to complete DHRs - GOV.UK - Domestic homicide reviews: statutory guidance (external website)

The Home Office has also published a report on common themes identified as lessons to be learned from DHRs - GOV.UK - Domestic homicide reviews: key findings from research (external website)
