Community Safety covers a broad spread of issues for the local community, from reducing crime and anti social behaviour to providing CCTV and security services at locations across the Borough.
The Communities Team works to address these issues in communities across Broxtowe. The team also helps to run the South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership and works closely with other organisations such as the Police to plan a strategic approach that will help to tackle community safety issues across the Borough.
The main areas of work covered by the Communities Team include:
- Working with partners to tackle volume crime, the fear of crime and disorder, anti social behaviour, drug and domestic violence issues
- Developing activities aimed at reducing incidents of anti social behaviour
- Supporting drug and alcohol awareness and diversionary activities
- Responding to domestic violence issues
- Providing fixed and mobile CCTV and security services
In this section, you can find out more about the issues and work covered by the Communities Team.
