Surrey remains a very safe place to live and it has one of the lowest crime rates in the South East.
However, we recognise that community safety issues are important to our residents, so we work in partnership with other organisations to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.
Safer Woking Partnership
The Safer Woking Partnership was set up to help reduce crime in our area by promoting crime prevention initiatives and protecting the most vulnerable people in our community.
It includes representatives from:
- Surrey County Council
- Surrey Fire and Rescue Service
- NHS North West Surrey Clinical Commissioning Group
- Surrey Police
- Kent Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company
- Woking Borough Council
By working together, the partnership's objective is to tackle offenders while reducing the fear of crime by providing reassurance to the public. It focuses on a range of issues from:
- anti-social behaviour
- drugs and alcohol
- domestic abuse to hate crime
- organised crime
- violent extremism
- criminal reoffending
- child exploitation.
