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. 

The Council welcome your comments and looks forward to receiving your feedback. The public consultation will run for eight weeks and the deadline to submit feedback is 5pm Tuesday 12 July 2016. The feedback from the consultation will help influence how the reduced funding is prioritised.
