Safer Norwich Strategy 2023-26

Key success measures

A safer city where:

  • We will embed a joint problem-solving approach to locational anti-social behaviour across key partners and services.
  • We develop key datasets and sources to understand ASB and those who perpetrate it.
  • We will identify and resource effective interventions to support young people away from anti-social behaviour and crime.
  • We work with residents to identify issues and shared responses.
  • We continue to invest in our housing neighbourhoods – maintenance, estate improvements, and security measures.

A connected city where:

  • We will identify our key partners and make sure they are signed up to the Safer Norwich Partnership Board.
  • The Safer Norwich Partnership Board informs and influences the Norfolk County Community Safety Partnership (NCCSP).
  • We will ensure that data products from NCCSP meet Norwich’s needs.
  • We will produce an annual crime, ASB and community safety audit with agreed datasets and sources.

A supportive city where:

  • We will develop key datasets and sources to understand issues around drug and alcohol related crime and inform development of effective interventions.

  • Provide support for those experiencing substance and alcohol addiction.
  • There is effective action to dismantle County Lines operations.
  • Protecting individuals, households, and communities from the impact of drug-dealing and cuckooing.
