Communities Select Committee is responsible for scrutiny of
safeguarding vulnerable people, community safety and localism. In
particular it will include priorities around:
Safeguarding vulnerable adults
The Council’s responsibilities regarding reducing crime and
the fear of crime and wider Community Safety priorities (referring
matters as appropriate to the Police and Crime Panel where

There will be occasions when the committee
will undertake joint working with the Healthy Staffordshire Select
Committee especially in regard to safeguarding issues and the
