Continue work which builds local communities and neighbourhoods which are resistant to crime and community safety problems. Ensure people, particularly older or disabled people, feel safer through partnership working, community engagement and stronger community structures.
Review, develop and support the network of Local Action Teams ensuring they are in a good position to respond to issues in their neighbourhood and work effectively with service providers.
Maintain an effective structure, co-ordination and targeting of crime reduction and community safety resources in neighbourhoods and across the city.
Continue to work with council planning and highways departments to ensure that public realm improvements are crime resistant and that new developments in the city incorporate design features which deter crime and the fear of crime.
