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.
This year, Thanet Community Safety Partnership is proposing to centre their work around the following three themes:
The themes will continue to 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 3 to 27 January 2017 we are asking for your views on the proposed themes through our survey and our Community Safety Forum event which will be held on the 24 January 2017 at the Garlinge Primary School, Westfield Road, Westbrook, CT9 5PA. The forum gives 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 team. Residents also have the chance to hear what agencies were planning to do over the next year to improve community safety.
