Bucks Crime Survey

Thankfully, Haddenham is a very safe place in which to live. Presumably, given the limited resources now available to TVP, that's why the term 'police presence' has little meaning in our village. That said, Buckinghamshire Council is inviting residents to contribute to a crime survey.

How can we make Buckinghamshire safer? That is the question the Safer Buckinghamshire Board is asking residents and other interested parties as it launches its Safer Bucks consultation.

The Safer Buckinghamshire Board is the local multi-agency community safety partnership that brings together experts from the police, fire service, probation health and social care services.

Following last year's community safety survey, the new Safer Buckinghamshire Strategy 2023-26 was developed. The strategy outlined the five key priorities for improving community safety and fear of crime in the area. To help deliver the next 12 months of the strategy, the Safer Buckinghamshire Board is keen to know:

  • What impact crime and anti-social behaviour has in local areas
  • More about people's experiences of reporting crime
  • How safe or unsafe residents feel in Buckinghamshire

The consultation is open to anyone who lives, works or studies in Buckinghamshire. It is open until 29 October. You can complete the survey online at: Community safety survey 2023

Residents can obtain a hard copy by contacting: sbp@buckinghamshire.gov.uk.

Thomas Broom, Buckinghamshire Council's Deputy Cabinet Member for Community Safety said: "On the whole Buckinghamshire is a very safe place to live and visit but like any area, there can be times and locations where issues occur."

"We are really keen to hear from local residents and others about their experiences and the effect these matters have had on them."

"We can and do look at the statistics and background data, but this first-hand detail from individuals responding to a survey like this is invaluable in helping us to effectively target our resources and attention to make the best impact and improvement. It doesn't take long to complete so please take a few minutes to let us know your thoughts."
