Summary of a report that presents the key findings from a questionnaire study to explore the extent and nature of information sharing arrangements used by Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs) across England and Wales to prevent and reduce violence and other types of crime. The findings of this study provide some evidence that, at the time of the survey (late 2009), data sharing was being widely used by CSPs who responded to tackle violence and other crimes and that these arrangements were more developed in areas with higher rates of violent crime. The results indicate that arrangements are working to varying degrees of success, with personalised information sharing arrangements perceived to be particularly effective.
