An annual consultation has been launched to find out about local resident’s experiences of crime and anti-social behaviour, and their perception of criminal activity in the area.
The consultation, which is held each year, is part of the Joint Strategic Intelligence Assessment (JSIA), and helps the Community Safety Partnership to get a clearer picture of where to direct their resources and which crimes to prioritise.
The survey asks local people about their views on crime and anti-social behaviour in the local area – whether they feel that crime has increased, decreased, or stayed the same – and how their family has been affected by crime during the last year.
Responses from local residents are combined with crime data for the local area, giving the Council, Police and other local services a picture of what crime is taking place compared with the public perception of crime and where people feel more resources should be directed.
Councillor Ron Shepherd, portfolio holder for safer and stronger communities in North East Lincolnshire, said:
“This survey helps to inform local services like the Police and the Council about how people perceive crime and anti-social behaviour to be impacting their lives and the area.
“With this information, these organisations can make decisions about where to focus resources, and how best to tackle the problems that are being reported.
“I’d encourage as many local residents as possible to take part in this survey, give us your views, and help us to make an impact on crime.”
This consultation is now open for responses until Tuesday 23 May 2023. To take part, visit www.nelincs.gov.uk/have-your-say.
