The Merthyr Tydfil Community Safety Partnership is a multi-agency partnership working together to reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour throughout the County Borough of Merthyr Tydfil. The Partnership is committed to making the borough a safer place to live, work and visit.
The Partnership was established as a result of the Crime and Disorder Act in 1998 and is made up of both statutory partners and voluntary sector organisations.
Statutory Partners include:

- Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council
- South Wales Fire Authority
- Cwm Taf Local Health Board

The involvement of voluntary and community sector organisations is also vital if the Community Safety Partnership is to work to its full potential.

- Voluntary Action Merthyr Tydfil (VAMT)
- Safer Merthyr Tydfil (SMT)
- Neighbourhood Watch
- Victim Support
