The Safer Arun Partnership (SAP) produces an annual Strategic Intelligence Assessment (SIA) report which gives an overview of key areas of work throughout the year and makes recommendations for the following year.

The priorities for SAP over the year 2021/2022 are:

In addition to the Arun district specific Community Safety Partnership, there is also a cross boundary partnership with Chichester. The Joint Community Safety Partnership addresses common themes to both Arun and Chichester and utilises resources to create the most effective shared responses.
This partnership also makes the most of the local Arun and Chichester policing hub and allows for collaboration between agencies to identify and take action on community based issues that affect both areas.
