The priorities set in the Police and Crime Plan cannot be achieved by South Yorkshire Police alone, but by a holistic approach involving all agencies with a duty to protect vulnerable people, tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, and provide a service to help victims cope and recover.

To support this the Police and Crime Commissioner commissions partners and community groups to do this on his behalf, as they are often the ones best placed to know  what victims and communities need.

The Commissioner also maintains a Community Safety Fund, which helps fund drug intervention programmes, Community Safety Partnerships and Youth Offending Services.
