Tackling crime and disorder is not just the job of the police - we all need to play a part in making our communities safer. If it’s to be effective, cutting crime and the fear of crime needs to involve everyone - residents, employers, visitors.
In the Royal Borough different agencies such as the police, fire, probation and housing associations along with the council are committed to doing just that - working together to make the borough an even safer place to live, work and visit.
