to each of the persons with whom, and bodies with which, the responsible

 

authorities have a duty to co-operate under section 5(2) of the Crime and

 

Disorder Act 1998 (c. 37) (“the co-operating persons and bodies”).

 

(3)    

Where a member of a local authority (“the councillor”) is asked to consider a local
