PACT is a local problem solving process to allow local people to identify, along with police and partners, those issues which impact upon the quality of life on their doorstep. PACT public meetings are open to everyone living or spending time in a particular neighbourhood and allow a discussion on specific problems identified in the area. The PACT structure provides a useful guide as to how communities engage together and look at problems at neighbourhood level.
The PACT panel is made up of a group of representatives from a variety of agencies – there are representatives from the PSNI, Housing Executive, local council, Neighbourhood Watch groups and other community groups At the end of each meeting, agency representatives are tasked with action points to take forward. The PACT panel agree a realistic and achievable course of action to address the priority issues identified by the community within an agreed timescale.
