Council seek views on crime in Thurrock

THE Thurrock Community Safety Partnership is seeking people’s views about crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough.

An online consultation is running until October and can be viewed by clicking on the consultations link at Thurrock Council’s internet home page (www.thurrock.gov.uk).

The partnership – a link involving the council the health service and police – are asking what people think about crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.

It asks how safe people feel as well as questions on hate crime; doorstep callers; neighbours; the local environment – clean streets; and vandalism among others.

Cllr Angie Gaywood, Thurrock Council’s portfolio holder for public protection, said: “Your views are important to us and will help shape strategies and priorities for reducing crime and ensuring residents feel safe where they live.

“The survey doesn’t ask for your name or address, just your postcode so we can see where there are specific problems and the results of the survey will be kept anonymous.”

She added: “The purpose of the survey is to seek residents’ views about crime, anti-social behaviour and incident reporting, with particular regard to hate crime and distraction burglaries.

“It is not a statutory survey but will help support the development of action plans for the all the partners involved.”
