Promoting trust and understanding between groups from different backgrounds is as important in Herefordshire, as anywhere else. Through our membership of the Community Safety Partnership we encourage neighbourhoods, villages and towns in the county to become more involved in making where they live even safer.
Not feeling safe where you live or work can have a major effect upon your quality of life, health and wellbeing. At worst, it leads to social isolation and make someone feel ever more vulnerable in their own community. Fortunately, Herefordshire is generally a very safe place with some of the lowest crime rates in the country. However, we want to make things even better.
The Community Safety Partnership's main priorities
To help improve the safety and well-being of residents and visitors to the county, the Community Safety Partnership work to:
- Bring offenders to account and cut levels of reoffending
- Address the harm caused by domestic violence and abuse
- Minimise the impact of alcohol and drugs on our communities
- Promote community togetherness and cut anti-social behaviour
We also work to help keep people safe on our roads.
Our community safety strategy highlights how the Community Safety Partnership will tackle community safety issues within Herefordshire between 2017 and 2020.
