Co-operating, Engaging & Partnership Working with Police & other Agencies  

Click a link below or scroll down for details of each of our Partners 

Our statutory partners currently include  the PSNI, Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Belfast City Council, Youth Justice Agency and the Belfast Policing and Community Safety Partnership. They all have an important role to play in our community led partnership. 

Each organisation has responsibilities for dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour, so it is important that they all work together for the benefit of the Tigers Bay & Mountcollyer communities. 

Community representatives on the Tigers Bay & Mountcollyer Policing and Community Safety Partnership exercise a level of accountability with all the statutory partners by monitoring their performance when dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour to ensure that whenever possible, the statutory partners communicate and work in partnership with each other to reduce local crime and anti-social behaviour problems. 

Community representatives also have a responsibility to garner support and co-operation from local residents for policing and community safety initiatives and other related activities such as improving relationships between residents, police and other statutory agencies, encouraging residents to report crime, anti-social and suspicious behaviour and providing information to local residents in relation to crime prevention information and up to date crime statistics. 

One of the ways our partnership keeps the community informed is by producing quarterly community safety magazines that detail the full  range of responsibilities and services provided by Police and other statutory agencies when dealing with crime and anti-social behaviour. The magazines also highlights specific crime trends, anti-social behaviour hot spots and promote crime prevention advice. Click a link below to open a magazine in a new window

The Tigers Bay & Mountcollyer  Neighbourhood Policing team is totally committed to partnership working with all communities in these areas. Policing and Community Safety Partnerships are fine examples of partnership work between the police, community and the statutory/voluntary sector. Multi-agency approaches to reducing crime and anti-social behaviour have certainly paid off in this area with statistics currently reflecting significantly reduced crime figures over the last few years.

Local residents are now contacting police in greater numbers than ever before to report crime, suspicious activity and anti-social behaviour. This has allowed community police to develop a much stronger and meaningful relationship with the greater Finaghy community.

 Through our work we want to help build safer, shared and confident communities throughout Belfast. Our main functions are to:

  • deliver services which make a real difference
  • consult and engage with the public about their opinions on community safety and policing
  • monitor our, and the police's, performance and encourage the public to work with the police in preventing crime.
  • If you would like to know more or come along to an event in your area, please contact us. Tel: 02890270469

 Belfast Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) was established in April 2012 and brings together the work of the former Community Safety Partnership and District Policing Partnership. 

It is facilitated by Belfast City Council and overseen regionally by the Department of Justice and the Northern Ireland Policing Board. 

Membership is made up of elected representatives, publicly appointed members of the community, and organisations which play a role in tackling crime and antisocial behaviour, such as the police. 

Belfast City Council want everyone to feel safe in the Tigers Bay and Mountcollyer areas, so we're working with the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) and other groups to enforce alcohol bye-laws in public areas. The PSNI can confiscate alcohol, take the names of offending drinkers and then pass them onto us so we can prosecute them . This forms part of our ongoing work to reduce underage and on-street drinking. We also run education and awareness sessions in communities and schools throughout North Belfast.  

When you're out and about, please be aware that anyone over the age of 18 caught drinking in a specified non-drinking area may be prosecuted and could face a fine of up to £500. Anyone under the age of 18 caught drinking will have their details passed on to the PSNI Youth Diversion Officer and have a letter sent to their parents. We may also use an acceptable behaviour contract as an early intervention method to encourage positive behaviour.

Street drinking in the Tigers Bay and Mountcollyer area is on the decline. Designated alcohol free zones have enabled Belfast City Council Community Safety Officers, supported by police, to deal more effectively with this particular problem. 

Under age drinking is another focus. Faced with alcohol confiscation and a zero tolerance attitude, this activity is also in decline. Council staff also engage, educate and train staff from all the local off licences etc on the consequences of selling alcohol to underage persons. 


Belfast City Council now has new Neighbourhood Officer Teams working across Belfast to help improve community safety. There are now two new Safer Neighbourhood Officers employed in North Belfast and  they will be working with Mark Corbett (North Belfast Antisocial Behaviour Officer) to help residents deal with any problems they may experience within their community, as well as, celebrate the successes of any positive work.  They both have a good working knowledge of North Belfast and are familiar with issues that exist in the area; including: 

on-street drinking, 
dog fouling, and 
noise nuisance. 

These new officers are really looking forward to building relationships with individuals and groups and assisting them in practical ways. The Safer Neighbourhood Officers are very happy to be working in your area they hope that together with local residents and other agencies they can make it feel safer and a better environment to live in. To get in touch with your local Neighbourhood Officers or to report antisocial behaviour call:

The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is a statutory agency that has a significant role to play in combating anti-social behaviour. The Housing Executive’s definition of Anti-social behaviour is;
“when the behaviour of households or individuals in a neighbourhood adversely affects other people's use and enjoyment of their home or neighbourhood"

"In its most extreme form, anti-social behaviour can threaten the physical or mental health, or safety and security of individuals”
The Housing (Northern Ireland) Order, 2003 gives the Housing Executive stronger powers to deal with antisocial behaviour:
Possession Proceedings
The grounds for seeking possession of a NIHE property due to anti-social behaviour have been widened. They now include:
Nuisance caused by visitors to a tenant’s home
Nuisance caused to anyone visiting or conducting business in an estate
The Executive may now seek possession on grounds of a criminal conviction for dealing drugs or other serious convictions or on grounds of domestic violence.
Injunction Proceedings
The Housing Executive can now seek an Injunction not only against a tenant but against anyone  causing a nuisance within the locality of their properties. An Injunction orders a person to stop the anti-social behaviour or not to enter a particular area. The punishment for breaching an injunction may be a prison sentence.
Introductory Tenancies
All new tenancies will be on an introductory basis. Anti-social behaviour during this first year could result in the loss of the tenancy.
Anyone  who  has  been  guilty   of  antisocial  behaviour  could  find  they  are  ineligible  for  housing assistance in  the future.
The Northern Ireland Housing Executive is committed to improving the quality of life in the Tigers Bay & Mountcollyer areas, but they cannot do it without your help and support. If you are a Housing Executive tenant and you have a specific complaint about anyone causing a nuisance in your area, contact the anti-social behaviour officer at the Northern Ireland Housing Executive North Belfast Office as soon as possible on 03448920900  

Examples of anti-social behaviour can range from intimidation and racism to noise and boundary disputes. In addition to nuisance to neighbours, the Housing Executive's current  general conditions of tenancy stipulates that the tenant must ensure that other specific obligations are not broken. These obligations might involve for example, the state of repair and maintenance of a dwelling, or the parking of vehicles. They can, in certain circumstances, be interpreted as anti-social behaviour, if they result in nuisance or annoyance to neighbours and impact on the use and enjoyment of their home. It is important to note that the Housing Executive have a duty of care to their tenants and as such can take action against homeowners or privately rented occupiers who cause anti-social behaviour that impacts on Housing Executive tenants. Whether its playing loud music at all hours of the day and night, vandalism or harassment, anti-social behaviour cannot be tolerated. The Housing Executive believes that anyone who is causing distress, fear, nuisance and annoyance should take responsibility for their actions.
