In Week 2 of Collaborative problem solving for community safety you were introduced to a number of key tools for exploring and analysing stakeholders. You were also introduced to the Brixton Splash case study and considered how these tools might be applied.

These tools included:

1. Mapping primary and secondary stakeholders.

  • Primary stakeholders: individuals and groups that have a direct, specific interest in how community policing is run, its mission, its effectiveness and other day-to-day issues.
  • Secondary stakeholders: those who may also have an interest in the community policing but perhaps not as directly or as specifically as primary stakeholders.

2. Evaluating and mapping stakeholder power and interest using the power/interest grid.
