Big plans for keeping our communities safe

Big plans for keeping our communities safe


Our Community Safety Teams work in partnership with the Police, Fire Brigade, Health and other key agencies through the Safer Stockton Partnership to develop projects and initiatives to deter and reduce crime.

Every three years we undertake a Crime and Disorder Audit, and following public consultation, we produce a Community Safety Plan which sets out how we intend to achieve our targets in crime reduction. The latest audit was concluded in October 2013 and the priorities have formed the basis of the Community Safety Plan 2014 - 2017.

Top six crime priorities were:

  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Violent crime (including robbery)
  • Drug related offending
  • Criminal damage
  • Alcohol related crime / ASB
  • Domestic violence

The top six ASB priorities were:

  • Vandalism
  • Poor parental responsibility
  • Threats / verbal abuse
  • Alcohol misuse
  • Littering / dumping rubbish
  • Dog fouling


Scrutiny of Community Safety policies

The Council's Crime and Disorder Select Committee monitors and evaluates the way in which we work and how policies are being implemented and developed.
