We work along with external partners to address enforcement issues and provide services that make Medway a safe and secure place to live, work and visit.
We want to ensure our residents feel safe and have created a Community Safety Plan, which describes how we will help to reduce crime and disorder in Medway.
If you're worried about your safety and need help urgently, call 999. If it's not an emergency, call the Police on 101 or contact Kent Crime Stoppers anonymously with information about crime on 0800 555 111.
Community Safety Partnership
Medway's Community Safety Partnership (CSP) was formed in 1998 in response to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 which places a duty on the council, the police and other public agencies to form a crime and disorder partnership.
Medway CSP works to make Medway a safer place. Partners work together to develop and implement strategies to protect communities of Medway from a range of issues including anti-social behaviour, drug or alcohol abuse and re-offending.
The partnership consists of:
- Medway Council
- Kent Police
- Kent, Surrey and Sussex Community Rehabilitation Company
- Medway Clinical Commissioning Group
- Kent Fire and Rescue Service
- other key stakeholders and community groups such as PACTs.
Community Safety Partnership survey
We are consulting the public on what they feel is a priority. The results of the consultation will give us information to prioritise our work in the year ahead based on what is important to them and how safe they feel.
The survey will close on 31 December 2021.
