Crime & Safety

Under my leadership the council has invested £1.5M in 41 ANPR cameras.


With police numbers cut, we are investing in the safety of our residents.


I have invested heavily in our enforcement team to help reduce the impact of police cuts.

We have created a £50,000 community Safety Fund to support neighbourhood watch schemes and community groups.


The fund helps to promote good citizenship and support those in our community who feel they can assist in crime prevention.


We are rolling out a programme of new LED streetlights across the Borough meaning more environmentally friendly and financially efficient lighting, while increasing resident safety.
