The Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership (LCSP) want to know what you think the priorities should be to improve community safety and tackle crime in your area.

The partnership will use the results of this year’s survey to help determine where resources and activity should be targeted, as organisations work together to keep people safe.

Cllr Barry Young, Executive Councillor for Community Safety at the county council, said:
“Crime rates in Lincolnshire are generally low, but feeling safe in your community is important too. Every year the partnership reviews what it should focus on, and your views can help decide what should be done at a local level in towns and districts in Lincolnshire.”

In previous years, feedback from residents has led to projects such as:
– the Activate programme in South Holland to engage 8 – 19 year olds in positive activities;
– the Street Smart programme in Boston to rejuvenate areas that have been blighted by graffiti and litter, working with local young people;
– tackling street drinking with Operation Dakota.

The survey is available at and closes on 11 November 2016.
