Should CCTV be a priority?
Should CCTV be a priority?

Your views are wanted on what authorities should be doing as a priority to improve community safety and tackle crime in your area.

A survey has been launched by the Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership to help it determine where resources and activity should be targeted.

The partnership is made up of local councils, Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue Service, Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire Community Rehabilitation Company Ltd (a local probation service provider), the National Probation Service, Clinical Commissioning Groups and the Police and Crime Commissioner.

It works to tackle issues of crime and disorder and improve the quality of life for people living, working, or visiting the area.

Coun Barry Young, executive councillor for community safety at Lincolnshire 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.”
