What we do?

Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP aims to make our community safer.  We do this by focusing on the policing and community safety issues that matter most in Lisburn.  We:

  • consult and engage with the local community on the issues of concern in relation to policing and community safety. The Policing Committee has a distinct responsibility to provide views to the relevant district commander and the Policing Board on policing matters;

  • identify and prioritise the particular issues of concern and prepare plans for how these can be tackled;

  • monitor - a Policing Committee comprising the political and independent members will monitor the performance of the police and work to gain the co-operation of the public with the police in preventing crime;

  • deliver a reduction in crime and enhance community safety in our district, directly through our own interventions, through the work of our delivery groups or through support for the work of others. 


Policing Committee


Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP Policing Committee works with local police to develop the local policing plan and monitor their performance against this plan.

The role of the Policing Committee is to carry out the following specific functions:

  • to provide views to a relevant police commander and to the Policing Board on any matter concerning the district;

  • to monitor performance of the police in carrying out the policing plan in the district; and

  • to make arrangements for obtaining the co-operation of the public with the policing in preventing crime and enhancing community safety in the district.


Community Safety


Lisburn & Castlereagh PCSP will work with the community to identify issues of concern in the local area and potential solutions, and will prepare a plan to address these concerns. The focus of the plan will be on delivering practical solutions.  We also work in partnership with those organisations that have a contribution to make to enhancing community safety in our area.
