Neighbourhood Action Panel

Neighbourhood Action Panels, sometimes called NAPs, are regular meetings with members of the community where the issues raised by the community are discussed and prioritised.  The aim is to agree priorities and decide on a realistic and achieveable course of action to address them.

A NAP consists of people who live or work in the neighbourhood or those who provide a service to the local community. The issues raised will be those identified through various methods of engagement carried out by the policing team, or those identified to the other members of the NAP through their own consultation.  Priorities are set by the community without influence from the police.

Neighbourhood action panel priorities are reviewed by a multi-agency group from within the district who offer problem-solving support.
