Fear of Crime

Why are we doing this?

The Safer Croydon Partnership brings together the Police, Council, Fire, Health, Probation, voluntary, community groups and businesses. Its aim is to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour. 

We are conducting this survey to find out how you feel about crime and anti-social behaviour. This helps us to see which locations and issues most concern you, and in turn this helps us direct resources more effectively and efficiently so that all those living, working or visiting Croydon feel safer.

Here's what's happened since the last survey in 2015:

•    You told us that the locations in Croydon where you don’t feel safe were West Croydon bus station, Thornton Heath and South Norwood During the past two years all of these areas have benefited from physical improvements such as new paving and improved lighting.

•    We have seen a reduction in the number of victims of serious youth violence in the borough from 439 (Sept 2016-2017) to 395 (Sept 2017-2018);

•    Finally, we are pleased that the Safer Croydon Partnership were finalists in the Metropolitan Police Problem Solving Awards for the past two years and the Joint Agency Group, which tackles anti-social behaviour.

As a result, we have secured additional funding to purchase 10 temporary CCTV cameras for deployment borough wide.


What do we want to know?

We want to know what crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) issues concern you most in your local area. This will help us improve co-ordinatation of local activity between all of our partners and make the best use of resources.
