Have your say on the city’s community safety priorities

We’re after your views on the work of the city’s community safety partnership over the next three years.

The community safety partnership links a range of organisations working together to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in Brighton & Hove, including the council and Sussex Police.

Our draft Community Safety & Crime Reduction Strategy sets out the partnership’s priorities from April 2020 to March 2023.

The priority areas have been drawn up with partners based on an assessment of local and national data on crime and community safety. 

The consultation is open until 21 February 2020.

Proposed priorities

The proposed priority areas for the community safety partnership’s work over the next three years outlined in the draft strategy are:

  • Serious violence, including the night-time economy
  • Exploitation
  • Domestic and sexual violence and abuse, and other forms of violence against women and girls
  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Hate incidents and crimes
  • Challenging extremism
  • Prevent

Working together

Councillor Alan Robins, chair of the Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture committee, said: “The city’s community safety partnership does a very important job in bringing statutory, voluntary and community organisations together to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

“With reported crime locally and nationally on a rising trend and continuing budget pressures, this is a challenging time. It’s more important than ever that agencies work together to keep Brighton & Hove a safe and welcoming city.

“Please do have a look at the city’s draft community safety strategy and tell us your views.”
