We want to know how safe you feel in the district and what your priority concerns are regarding crime and disorder in our annual community safety survey, whether it’s anti-social behaviour, vehicle crime or violent crime?
While North Herts is a relatively safe place to live and is one of the lowest crime areas in Hertfordshire, local organisations work hard to keep it that way. Please complete our short survey to let us know what you think about community safety in North Herts and what our priorities should be. Your feedback helps us address local issues and helps communities feel safer.
Each year the North Herts Community Safety Partnership (CSP) – which comprises North Herts Council, Herts Police, Hertfordshire County Council and Herts Fire and Rescue Service, housing associations and other bodies – produces an action plan detailing what it has done and what it plans to do to address crime and community safety in the district.
Questions in the survey include what your top three community safety concerns are, and whether you think the perception and/or fear of crime is disproportionate to actual crime levels.
Jeanette Thompson, Chair of the North Herts Community Safety Partnership, and North Herts Council’s Service Director for Legal & Community, said: “Whether you live, work or visit North Herts, this is your opportunity to tell us your community safety priorities and any concerns you may have in our annual survey. The district remains one of the lowest crime areas in the county but we are not complacent. While we look at data and statistics, it’s also important to hear direct from local people, so please tell us what you think so the partnership can allocate resources accordingly.”
Neighbourhood Inspector for North Herts, James Lant, added: “By working together and using a multi-agency approach we hope to be able to tackle the concerns raised by our local communities. Your input is vital and the information from this survey will be used alongside other data we hold, to support our ongoing work, shape our policing strategy and make the changes necessary to make people feel safer in North Herts.”
Please complete the survey by 29 February.
