The Department of Justice and the Northern Ireland Policing Board have formed a Joint Committee and work together to set the strategic direction for the partnerships and to assess their effectiveness and confidence within the community.
The Joint Committee provides funding to each Council for the establishment and running of PCSPs.
Each of the partnerships comprises political representatives, publically-appointed independent members and designated statutory organisations that play a role in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.
