Community safety group's priorities for reducing crime in 2014
LATE-NIGHT town centre safety is one of the priorities for the coming year according to a partnership set up to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.
The Wycombe Community Safety Partnership is made up of organisations including Bucks County Council, Thames Valley Police, the Bucks Drug and Alcohol Action Team and Bucks Youth Offending Service.
Following research into crime levels for 2012/13, the LCP is focusing its efforts on tackling anti-social behaviour and gang activity, property related crime and preventing violence and abuse.
Also, it aims to promote the Nightsafe Partnership, a programme working to tackle issues around having a safe night out.
Measures include a publicity and education programme aimed at 18 to 24 year olds and the use of policing operations which could see metal-detecting knife arches in the town centre.
The LCP has released a survey for residents to have their say on where efforts should be concentrated.
The results of this survey will influence the partnership’s work in 2014, and £25 Eden vouchers are up for grabs by filling it out.
