Burglary and theft
Our residents should know that burglary is treated seriously and are confident that agencies prioritise prevention activities as well as respond actively and personally when it happens.
What we will do
With a tailored plan for each ward, we will develop targeted, intelligence-led approaches for each area. Our efforts will enable people to improve the security of their homes, including subsidising equipment and improving safety features within social housing.
Every victim of burglary will be offered a visit from the police, with additional support offered to nearby residents who may be fearful of their own risk. More effective working between police, council engagement officers, Street Watch and neighbourhood groups can amplify preventative and responsive work, increasing confidence amongst residents.
