Have your say on community safety in Warwickshire


Local residents and businesses are being asked for their views on community safety in Warwickshire to ensure the right services are being developed to help make people feel safer and secure.

An online survey has been developed to give people across the county the chance to feed back to a range of organisations – local councils, fire and rescue, police, probation, health and third sector – who work together to address community safety through the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board.

The survey will inform the partnership board about what matters to residents and businesses in Warwickshire, both at a neighbourhood and national level.

The survey will assist the Safer Warwickshire Partnership Board to better understand how crimes and incidents impact on their feelings of safety, what influences how safe they feel and how they would like to be engaged in the future.

Topics covered included people’s personal experiences of crime and anti-social behaviour in their local area, as well what types of incident are most concerning. Views on the effects of hate crime and personal safety are also being sought, alongside feedback on road safety, including how safe people feel using the road networks across Warwickshire and the wider UK.
