How concerned are you about crime in your local area? Do you feel safe where you live? East Herts Community Safety Partnership (CSP)* is inviting residents to share their views on how safe they feel in their local communities.

The CSP is asking local residents and visitors to engage in the ‘Feelings of Safety’ survey which launches in East Herts today (Tuesday 1 February). 

The survey will assist in identifying areas of concern and help the CSP to understand the reasons that people may not feel safe in our towns and villages. The feedback will then be used to help shape local safety improvements.

Cllr Peter Boylan, Executive Member for Neighbourhoods at East Herts Council, said: “The partnership undertakes a significant amount work across East Herts to keep our communities safe. The views of local residents are essential in targeting that work where it’s needed most and we hope as many people as possible will complete the survey, whether they are new to the area or have lived and worked here a long time.”

East Herts Safer Neighbourhood Inspector Mark Collins added: “Community safety is a high priority for the CSP and affects the quality of life for both individuals and communities. The ‘Feelings of Safety’ campaign will provide us with vital information to help the partnership develop strategies and keep our neighbourhoods safe.”
