Community safety in Wales
17 October 2016
During 2015-16, we, on behalf of the Auditor General, examined whether the Welsh Government, Police and Crime Commissioners and local authorities are working together effectively to tackle crime and other public-safety issues that have a negative effect on people’s wellbeing.
Based on the findings of this audit, the Auditor General has concluded that complex responsibilities make it difficult for public bodies to co-ordinate a strategic approach to community safety, which weakens collective leadership and accountability and undermines the potential to help people stay safe.
