Residents to share community safety concerns

blaby district community safety partnershipHow safe do you feel in your local area? Do you think crime levels have improved? How satisfied are you with the way the police deal with antisocial behaviour?

These are just some of the questions residents in Blaby District will be able to comment on through a new consultation by the Joint Community Safety Partnership.

The survey, which is open to residents to complete throughout the year, will enable the partnership to find out what current concerns there are about crime, antisocial behaviour and community safety issues in the district.

Councillor Tony Greenwood, portfolio holder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy, said:

“The aim of the consultation is to find out what factors are concerning the public when it comes to local safety.

“Not only will it help the Joint Community Safety Partnership to continually improve its services, but can also monitor its progress throughout the year against the priorities and actions agreed for 2014-15.”

The partnership is made up of a range of organisations who work together to make Blaby a safe place to live, work and visit. This includes Blaby District Council, Leicestershire Police, and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service.

Partners within the Joint Community Safety Partnership will be conducting the consultation face-to-face during routine beat surgeries and community visits.

Residents also have the option to fill out the survey online at

Hard copies will be available during the year at the Blaby District Council offices, libraries and other community buildings.
