Community Safety



Established in July 2009, the Community Protection team is one of the Council’s newest service areas, and has been developing ever since; moving from an initial emphasis of tackling on-street ASB through high visibility patrolling, to a more blended approach which not only seeks to confront issues head on, but also work with victims over time and build cases against offenders where necessary. In January 2014, a new post of Domestic Violence Prevention Officer was created, bolstering the team’s efforts in this area.

Working alongside our partners we have made great strides in how we support victims and tackle offenders, using statutory powers whenever needed. There is however increasing demand for our assistance and our focus is therefore both on helping to solve immediate issues but also working to prevent recurrence.
