Community Safety Service Review: Public consultation
We know that community safety is a key concern for the public. In order to focus resources
on the most vulnerable and at highest risk in the community, our Community Safety
Team will have to change the way it provides services. The consultation outlines proposed
changes to the service in the context of Camden’s overall financial challenge.
There will also be information in the consultation regarding the areas where the Community Safety Service is proposing to reduce funding with the reasons for doing so. These include the response to antisocial behaviour and some of our patrol services. The housing patrol and CCTV services on our estates will continue.
Given the focus on providing support to those who are most vulnerable and at the highest risk of harm in our communities, some funding investments are also being considered. These areas include services to tackle domestic violence and abuse and maintaining services for rough sleeping. Possible rewording: Given the focus on providing support to those who are most vulnerable and at the highest risk of harm in our communities, we are considering increasing investment in services to tackle domestic violence and abuse and are looking to maintain our investment in addressing rough sleeping.
This is further outlined in the full consultation document.
