Community safety service review: public consultation

In December 2015, our Cabinet agreed to reduce the money we spend on community safety and crime reduction services by 25%. This is part of a package of proposals developed following consultation with residents to meet our tough financial challenge.

This reduction will mean that we cannot continue to deliver services in the same way and we need to rethink the way we provide community safety services. We are proposing to prioritise the use of these reduced resources on areas where we can make the greatest difference, by providing support and interventions for those who are most vulnerable and at the highest risk of harm in our communities. We are proposing these changes because we want to make sure that our available funding continues to have a positive impact for the most vulnerable people in our community.

The Community Safety Service Review: Public consultation is now live and will run until Tuesday 12 July at 5pm.
