Let me introduce you to Suffolk County Council’s Community Safety Team. Apart from their individual roles, all the team work closely together, and with partners, to ensure that you feel safe and secure in your own home and in your community.
Partners include, all Suffolk County Council Directorates, District and Borough Councils, Suffolk Constabulary, Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner, Norfolk and Suffolk Criminal Justice Board, together with very many organisations and charities within the Private and Voluntary Sector. Working collaboratively together in this way, and by having a strong commitment, contributes significantly to making Suffolk one of the safest places to live, work and visit.
