Community Safety Priorities 2016-17

This consultation is now closed.  Thank you to all that took part.

Thanet Community Safety Partnership is the collective name for a number of crime and disorder agencies which work together around certain initiatives to help improve community safety. This includes Thanet District Council, Kent County Council, Kent Police, NHS, Kent Fire and Rescue Service and Probation Services.

Each year we produce an annual Community Safety Plan which sets out the themes for the partnership.

For 2016-17, Thanet Community Safety Partnership is proposing to centre their work around the following three themes:

  • Reducing offending and re-offending
  • Safeguarding our most vulnerable people 
  • Improving community confidence and agency collaboration

The themes will have particular areas of focus such as domestic abuse, anti-social behaviour, gangs & exploitation, violent crime, organised crime & counter terrorism which all cut across the themes. The partnership plan aims to be more flexible & responsive to emerging issues using a range of methods to analyse statistics, pick up on real time information & take feedback from residents.

From 4 to 27 January 2016 we asked for your views on the proposed themes through our survey and our Community Safety Forum event on the 26 January 2016 at the Trinity Resource Centre, St Marys Avenue, Margate.

The forum gave residents the chance to have their say, give ideas and suggestions and put questions to Kent Police's District Commander and Thanet Council's Community Safety Manager.  Residents also had the chance to hear what agencies were planning to do over the next year to improve community safety.
