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. Statistical information about where you live is available from the Suffolk Observatory.
Together we form the Community Safety Partnerships who work together across Suffolk to carry out activities and projects to make Suffolk Safer.
You can get more information from your local Community Safety Officer through your local council or from the Community Safety Team at Suffolk County Council on 01473 264288.
We also play an important role in the Suffolk Strategic Partnership (SSP). The SSP brings together key stakeholders and agencies in the county to co-ordinate their work on behalf of the people of Suffolk more effectively. All Community Safety partners play an active part in developing working relationships for the benefit of the community and ensuring a focus on improving the quality of life and governance in a particular locality.
