    Abstract

    Over the years there have been many questions raised over the sustainability of community safety partnerships; whether due to the requirement of resources and finance (Edwards and Benyon, 2000, p.42) or whether there is enough support and input from the partners themselves, Skinns (2006, p.182) defines partnerships as more of a ‘flotilla of boats than an armada’ and (Khan, 1998, pp.33-39) asks what does the community gain from their existence. Having over twelve years’ experience as a community police officer and having had a good working relationship with several members of the Community Safety Team I wanted to find out whether the partnership works for all partners, whilst also looking at possible mergers and the influence of Police and Crime Commissioners, on their appointment in 2012. The results identified differing views throughout the interviews; however, overall, those who participated agreed that they benefited from being a member of the partnership and that, overall, the partnership worked.
