Graeme Henderson is urging residents and businesses to get involved in the Wandsworth Community Safety Partnership’s consultation and help ensure the borough’s crime fighting agencies are meeting local people’s priorities.

It’s important people engage with the consultation before it concludes in just under three weeks – there’s a closing date of December 21.

Cllr Henderson said: “Listening to the views and concerns of our local communities is vitally important in ensuring we get our strategies right and address the issues and concerns which have the most impact on our residents and businesses.

“The partnership has seen some notable successes in tackling the types of crime that most concern the public, but we must not be complacent and must continue our efforts to drive down offending and tackle all crime types.”

The Wandsworth Community Safety Partnership includes the police, council, fire brigade and other public bodies. The consultation will help shape its new Community Safety Strategy which will set out the actions the partnership will take to improve the safety and quality of life for communities in Wandsworth.

Key priorities likely to feature in the strategy include:

• Ensuring neighbourhoods are safe by tackling crime and anti-social behaviour including burglary and motor vehicle crime as well as violent crime such as robbery and knife crime

• Preventing violence against women and girls

• Preventing offending and reducing reoffending

• Tackling hate crime, extremism and radicalisation

• Keeping children and young people safe
