We work with the police to enable you to influence the community safety priorities in your neighbourhood.
You can attend your local area committee meetings, where (at every other meeting) the police and council representatives provide an update of current crime and disorder issues and an update on work to tackle them.
There are four neighbourhood profiles, each covering specific city wards:
- East area neighbourhood profile [PDF, 0.3MB] – covering Abbey, Coleridge, Petersfield and Romsey
- North area neighbourhood profile [PDF, 0.4MB] – covering Arbury, East Chesterton, King’s Hedges and West Chesterton
- South area neighbourhood profile [PDF, 0.4MB] – covering Cherry Hinton, Queen Edith’s and Trumpington
- West/ Central area neighbourhood profile [PDF, 0.3MB] – covering Castle, Market and Newnham
The profiles are updated every three months on average.
Following the presentation on the evening, everyone at the committee has the chance to ask questions and suggest issues that they would like to see tackled in the neighbourhood area.
The committee then recommends priorities for the police and partners to tackle.
These priorities are then adopted by a multi-agency neighbourhood action group where lead officers are assigned and action plans produced for tackling the issues.
