Community Safety Unit

Who we are

The Community Safety Unit (CSU) sits within the Police and Community Safety Directorate and is focused on two of the Scottish Government's national outcomes in particular:

Crime - we live our lives free from crime, disorder and danger.

Communities - We have strong, resilient and supportive communities where people take responsibility for their own actions and how they affect others.

What we do

The CSU's strategy for improving and promoting community safety in Scotland is driven by four key priorities:

  • Provide Leadership
  • Improve the evidence base
  • Deliver better outcomes for communities
  • Support the sector

To read more about how we are delivering on these priorities, download our Information Leaflet.
