Community Safety - Get Involved
How to get involved
Community safety is the reason for the existence of the CSP. Our main focus is to creating a safer, cleaner place to live, work and socialise. Although we work hard and invest a vast number of resources and time, we need your help to do this most effectively.
Think about it. You live in your area and therefore if there is any trouble you and your neighbours will be the first to know about it. We are at the other end of the phone, should the need arise, but there are things you can do yourself.
Should a situation arise, take the following steps:
- Consider talking to the people involved and see if through conversation you can get the issues resolved
- Talk to your neighbours and see who else is experiencing the same problems
- Keep a diary to register what happens, when and who is involved
Please feel free to Contact Us so we can advise you about your particular problem. You might also want to visit a local Neighbourhood Panel Meeting where local residents have an opportunity to have a say about what they would like to see addressed in their neighbourhood. Or perhaps you would be interested in setting up a Neighbourhood Watch.
If you are looking for tips to prevent becoming a victim of crime, see our Crime Prevention page for details
The chances of becoming a victim of crime have reduced dramatically over recent years, particularly in North Kent, where crime figures have shown a significant decrease.
Neighbourhood Watch is a community-run initiative using Partner Agencies such as the Police and Council to help prevent crime and anti-social behaviour in your area.
