Community Safety

What are your community safety concerns?

Safer Merton, the partnership made up of Merton Council, the Police, London Fire Brigade and other agencies, is keen to discover your top community safety concerns.

Partners will be heading out onto the streets until the end of October to provide advice and information and encourage people to fill in the annual Strategic Assessment form. This will allow the team to identify concerns, evaluate how concerns have changed since the consultation was first run three years ago, and decide upon the best actions to assist and reassure the public.

What services are available in Merton to victims of hate crime?

Safer Merton is keen to get a better understanding of the services offered to victims and witnesses of hate crime. They have developed a questionnaire which is predominately aimed at those organisations who offer or who can offer a service to victims or witnesses of hate crime.
