It begins today.

Everyone who lives or works in Bexley is being asked to take part in the Big Bexley Crime Survey 2014.

The survey takes place each year and provides the Bexley community safety partnership with information on local people’s experiences with crime and community safety.

The partnership uses the information to set its annual priorities and to ensure it uses its resources effectively.

Bexley’s Cabinet Member for leisure and community safety, Cllr Alex Sawyer, said: “Bexley continues to be one of the safest boroughs in London, yet we know that people don’t always feel as safe as we would like.

“We want to know about people’s own experience and where they think we should focus our efforts so that police, the Council, fire brigade, probation service, Safer Neighbourhood Board, Neighbourhood Watch, Victim Support and the other partners can tackle the problems that most affect people.”

The consultation ends on December 31.
