Community Safety Partnership Survey - 2021-22

Published: 03 February 2021

Each year the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) consults with the public as well as local groups on its plans for the coming year to tackle crime and disorder across the District. The survey seeks residents' views on whether the Partnership's priorities are correct and how you think we should tackle these. It gives residents an opportunity to share views on crime and anti-social behaviour in the District and to highlight problems that need to be addressed. This survey will support the development of action plans for the CSP in the coming year and is open from 1st February 2021 to 7th March 2021.

Our mission statement this year is Working for a safer St Albans and our priorities are focussed on achieving this. The Partnership identified 6 key priorities for the coming year which are detailed below:

Priorities

  1. To work together to prevent violent crime including knife crime, gangs, drug dealing, robbery and criminal exploitation by tackling the causes and minimising the consequences.
  2. To focus on those who are the victims of burglary, motor vehicle crime, cyber crime, scams and rogue trading, and addressing the outcomes.
  3. To work with landowners, businesses and the community to take action against fly tipping, anti-social behaviour, rural crime and road safety concerns
  4. To support victims of domestic abuse, tackling perpetrators, raising awareness and educating people about healthy relationships and personal safety.
  5. To provide help and support for those who need it by addressing alcohol and drug misuse, homelessness and street drinking issues, and challenging hate crime.
  6. To promote physical and mental wellbeing for all by assisting vulnerable people, both at home and in the community.

The full strategy can be viewed in the document below.

The CSP uses the strategy to formulate an action plan to meet the objectives set out for the year. The action plan is a working document which takes into account local emerging issues and it is updated on a regular basis.

We very much welcome your views and feedback and would ask that you complete the survey via the link below
