Community Safety

The most commonly accepted definition of Community Safety devised by COSLA (Convention of Scottish Local Authorities) is "Protecting people's rights to live in confidence and without fear for their own or other people's safety"

Community Safety is therefore as much about how people feel rather than how statistically safe they are. The Community Safety Partners approach focuses on 'protecting those most vulnerable in Society from those most likely to harm them'.

Information and analysis

Effective, proportionate information sharing is essential in tackling the many problems reported to the Safer Communities Team and the Hub. It is supported by the Admin and Information Team which has access to all Police and Council systems which ensure operations are well-informed and intelligence-led.
