Have your say on the city’s community safety strategy

We're after your views to help us set the priorities in the city’s Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy for 2023 to 2026.

The strategy sets out the focus of the work of Brighton & Hove’s Community Safety Partnership, made up of representatives from the council, Sussex Police, East Sussex Fire & Rescue and partner voluntary and community organisations in the city.

The draft 3 year strategy has been developed in consultation with partners and informed by an assessment of the current crime and community safety picture locally and nationally.

The proposed priority areas in the draft Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy include:

  • serious violence, drugs and exploitation
  • domestic and sexual violence, and abuse and other forms of violence against women and girls
  • anti-social behaviour
  • hate incidents and crimes

Find out more and have your say on the online draft Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy consultation

The consultation is open until Sunday 5 February.
