Community Safety

Community safety is about making you feel safer in your community.

This is done by many organisations working together with you to make your community safe. These organisations include: 

  • Suffolk County Council
  • District and borough councils
  • Suffolk Constabulary
  • Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service
  • Clinical Commissioning Groups
  • Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk
  • National Probation Service
  • Suffolk Criminal Justice Board
  • Voluntary Sector

We all have an important role to play in making Suffolk safer together. No one agency is solely responsible for making this happen but by working together with the above organisations, pooling resources and having a strong commitment, we contribute significantly to making Suffolk safer.
