Town centre safety and crime prevention

Your local Policing and Community Safety Partnership, the police and other organisations work with businesses and the community to reduce crime and disorder.

Town centre management

Town centre management brings together people and organisations to deal with crime, street layout and furniture, transport problems and quality of the environment.

Town centre management teams regularly review an area to make sure any changes are still working for businesses and residents.

They may improve the local area by:

  • installing CCTV systems to reduce street crime such as theft, drug dealing and assault
  • making shopping areas pedestrian only zones
  • landscaping unused waste land
  • improving street lighting

Your local town centre management team may include:

  • residents
  • local businesses
  • police
  • council departments
  • community safety groups
  • neighbouring councils

If you would like to find out about town centre management in your area or would like to get involved, contact your local council:
