Community Safety

Leicester City Council's Community Safety Team offers advice on:

 

  • reducing crime

  • community safety matters

  • reducing people’s fear of crime.


Under Section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 the city council must ensure that, in going about its business, it does not contribute to increased crime and anti-social behaviour. The Community Safety Team helps to co-ordinate work to tackle crime and disorder in Leicester.

 

The Safer Leicester Partnership recognises that no single agency can fight crime, disorder or drugs by itself. It takes the joined-up efforts of local agencies to make a real difference to community safety issues in Leicester.


Visit the Safer Leicester Partnership website for more details about what is going on in Leicester to reduce crime and the fear of crime.


These pages also include information about Leicester's Crime and Disorder Strategy, and the Street Drinking Ban within the city centre.

 

Keep Safe Places

The Keep Safe Places is a nationally recognised scheme which helps people to deal with the incidents that take place when they are out and about in the community. The scheme is aimed at helping people feel confident and safe when in their community, knowing that assistance is available if required.
