Community Safety

The Crime and Disorder audit for the Isles of Scilly is shortly to be published. This document is the result of recently introduced Legislation which places the duty upon the Islandsí Council and the Police to work in partnership in the cause of crime reduction.

Consultation has taken place with the community to ascertain the main areas of concern relating to crime and disorder and these have been identified within the audit document.

As expected, when compared with mainland districts, the Isles of Scilly has a relatively crime-free environment. The danger, of course, is that this leads to complacency and a reduction in standards. The partners have therefore created a proposed strategy for addressing the main areas of concern and this is included in the document for further consultation with the community.

The discussion document will be circulated to groups and organisations on the island and will be available for all members of the public to view at the Town Hall and Library. Any organisation that does not receive a copy of the document (including minority and focus groups) are asked to contact William Thomas, the Councilís Community Safety Officer at the Town Hall.
