What is community safety?

‘Community safety’ relates to your sense of personal security and feeling of safety in a place where you live, work, or spend your leisure time. It covers a number of projects, including Neighbourhood Policing. Contact them today.

It is about being safe and feeling safe, by addressing locally identified priorities. There are ways that you can get involved to improve the safety of your own community.

How to get involved

One of the simplest ways you can make a difference to your local community is through joining the schemes and meetings set up by your neighbours and other local people.

Getting to know everybody is essential when forming a strong community bond. One of the best ways of doing this is by holding a special community event. Provide food, drinks and entertainment for everybody to enjoy and mingle around.

The best type of entertainment to have at an event where you’re catering for different types of people is a fireworks display. You can buy cheap fireworks at The Fireworks Shop, in addition, you will find everything you need to have one of the most exciting and explosive displays in the area. Buy today.

 What can be done to help?

PCSPs aim to make our community safer by focussing on the policing and community safety issues that matter most in each local council area. Find out more.

In making communities safer, PCSPs will:

  • Consult and engage with the local community on the issues of concern in relation to policing and community safety. The Policing Committee has a responsibility to provide views to the relevant district commander and the Policing Board on policing matters. See more information.
  • Identify and prioritise the particular issues of concern and prepare plans for how these can be tackled
  • Monitor – a Policing Committee comprising the political and independent members will monitor the performance of the police and work to gain the co-operation of the public with the police in preventing crime
  • Deliver a reduction in crime and enhance community safety in their district, directly through their own actions, through the work of their delivery groups or through support for the work of others
