The Waterford Community Safety Partnership is a government initiative which brings together statutory services, the voluntary and community sector, local councillors and community members to work together to identify and tackle community safety issues in Waterford City & County. Waterford PPN members represent 51% of the committee, meaning community voices will be the majority and give the community a stronger voice in identifying and tackling the issues that individuals, families, young people, business owners and all members of the community face.
