Our Community Safety Unit is made up of three teams which all work towards making Charnwood a safer place to live, work or visit:
The combined teams take reports of incidents that have occurred locally, such as anti-social behaviour and hate incidents that are motivated by race, religion, gender, or sexuality etc. The teams also devise and support preventative initiatives to combat burglary, vehicle crime and cycle crime, as well as drug and alcohol issues.
We work in partnership with a range of agencies and services such as the Police, Leicestershire County Council, housing teams etc. to both prevent and tackle crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
For up to date information and advice, follow us on Twitter @SaferCharnwood.

Charnwood's Community Safety Partnership
The Charnwood Community Safety Partnership is a collection of agencies that come together to tackle community safety issues in the borough of Charnwood.
- Community Safety Partnership Plan 2020-2023 (PDF Document, 0.35 Mb)
Each year, the Partnership reviews performance and emerging issues to enable it to set new priorities and target. The three broad themes of the Partnership are:
- Making Communities Safer
- Protecting Vulnerable People
- Improving Community Confidence, Engagement and Cohesion
The 'Keep Safe Place' scheme
A Keep Safe Place is somewhere a person can go if they feel vulnerable (upset, scared, worried, confused or distressed) and need immediate support whilst they are out in the community – usually in the town centre.
