How concerned are you about crime in your local area? Do you feel safe where you live?
As part of their ongoing work aimed at helping women and girls feel safer in North Herts, the new multi-agency working group recently set up to tackle the issue, is adding another feedback method for local residents to use.
The group which consists of North Herts Police, North Herts Council, Herts Fire and Rescue Service and local housing association, settle, have been utilising the Government’s online tool StreetSafe, which allows people to flag locations where they feel unsafe, in the areas where they live or work. The group is now adding to this by launching the online ‘Feelings of Safety’ survey which is being rolled out across the county.
This new survey, along with StreetSafe, will identify areas of concern and help the group to understand the reasons that people may not feel safe in their towns and villages. The feedback will then be used to help shape local safety improvements.
North Herts Safer Neighbourhood Inspector James Lant said: “This survey is another way that our local communities can tell us how they feel and let us know what they think we should be focusing on.
“Along with the StreetSafe tool, the ‘Feelings of Safety’ survey will provide the group with vital information to help us work together and develop ways to make people feel safer. Please take time to fill it in as your input will help us keep you and our communities across North Herts safe.”
