The Cwm Taf Community Safety Board is a multi-agency partnership working together to reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour throughout the County Boroughs of Merthyr Tydfil and Rhondda Cynon Taf. The Board is committed to making the borough a safer place to live, work and visit.
The Regional Collaborative Board and previous Local Service Boards in both Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil merged to form a single Public Services Board (PSB) to deliver the goals of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act and is made up of both statutory partners and voluntary sector organisations.
Statutory Partners include:
- South Wales Police
- South Wales Police Authority
- Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council
- South Wales Fire Authority
- Cwm Taf Local Health Board
- Wales Probation Service
The current remit of the Cwm Taf Community Safety Board is inclusive of all matters relating to Community Safety and crime reduction in Cwm Taf with a particular focus on the key thematic areas of:
a) Crime and Disorder Reduction
b) Offender Management
c) Substance Misuse
d) Violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence

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