Wilbarston PC Supports The Community Safety Charter

What is the Community Safety Charter?

The aim of the Community Safety Charter is to involve a wider range of local organisations, charities, businesses and groups in crime prevention activity and extend the scope of this work towards a goal of eliminating harassment, antisocial behaviour, and intimidation experienced by anyone who lives, works, studies, or visits anywhere in England and Wales.

The Community Safety Charter is a means by which Neighbourhood Watch members, local residents, businesses, and organisations, agree to do whatever they can together to provide an environment that is safer for everyone, and help us to meet this goal by committing to:

The Pledges

  • Promote a culture that does not tolerate antisocial behaviour, harassment, intimidation and hostility towards others
  • Enable others to identify and take an active stance against these crimes and incidents
  • Actively encourage and support those who experience or witness these crimes and incidents to report them to the relevant authorities
  • Support those affected and signpost those who need further support to agencies who can help them

Who can sign up to the Charter?

Any individual, community group, Neighbourhood Watch scheme, business, charity or other organisation in England and Wales can sign up for FREE, including schools and universities, community centres, taxi firms and public places (such as museums, libraries and leisure centres).
