Community safety

Due to Monday May 27 being a Bank Holiday, there are some changes to opening times and other Council services. Find out more on the Bank Holiday webpage.

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.

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.

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:

  • Crime
  • Anti social behaviour
  • Community confidence

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.
