The joint Community Safety Partnership for Blaby District and the Borough of Hinckley and Bosworth has published its latest priorities for tackling crime and community safety issues in the local area.
The priorities in the new 2014-17 strategy have been agreed as a result of the crime and disorder figures from the recent strategic assessment for Blaby District and through consultation with the public earlier in the year.
Jane Toman, Director of People at Blaby District Council, said:
“The police and other public bodies have faced a number of changes in recent years including a reduction in resources.
“However the Community Safety Partnership remains committed to making Blaby District a safe place to live, work and visit. The new strategy builds on the previous successes of the joint partnership as well as setting out how we will tackle those crime and disorder issues that are of most concern to local people.
“It is vitally important that people feel safe in their own neighbourhoods, particularly those most vulnerable in our communities. It is also important that people have both confidence in reporting any concerns they have and in the response they will receive from our community safety services.”
The joint Community Safety Partnership is made up of a range of agencies including Blaby District Council and Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, Leicestershire Police, Leicestershire Fire & Rescue Service, Probation and Youth Offending Services, as well as voluntary sector and housing associations.
