Community safety is an area of concern for all communities. It is consistently a high public priority and one that can affect the quality of life for individuals and entire communities.
Partnership approaches to tackling crime and disorder are largely built on the principle that no single agency can deal with, or be responsible for dealing with, complex community safety and crime issues. This is why we work as Safer Central, a partnership that tackles issues together, for sustainable improvements and improved outcomes for communities.
Safer Central aims to reduce crime, disorder, anti-social behaviour and other behaviour affecting the local environment, as well as reducing the misuse of drugs, alcohol and other substances, reducing the fear of crime and increasing public confidence.
