Safer Guildford Partnership
The Safer Guildford Partnership (SGP) is a Community Safety Partnership with membership from a wide range of partners. The SGP is a statutory partnership with its roles and responsibilities set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

Safer Guildford Partnership action plan 2020-21
The SGP uses the experience and knowledge of local partners and crime and anti-social behaviour data to produce a 3-year Partnership Plan, which is agreed by the Safer Guildford Partnership Executive.
The Partnership Plan has an annual action plan which responds to current priorities and issues. The delivery of the Partnership Plan is supported by operational delivery groups that use a problem-solving approach to address key issues.
