The survey will be used to help decide Bexley Community Safety Partnership’s

A survey into local crime and disorder issues has been released to Bexley residents.

The survey offers the chance to respond to the Bexley Community Safety Partnership, with responses used alongside other data to decide priorities for 2016/2017.

Peter Craske, the council’s cabinet member for community safety, environment and leisure stressed the impact taking part can have in the area.

He said: “Bexley has one of the lowest crime rates in the country, we’re one of the safest borough’s in the country.

“It is important to keep checking what people think is the main problem in the area, we want to find out people’s biggest concerns.

“I personally will read them all, they have a real impact on the priorities for the next year.

“We’re always trying to get the numbers up, and each group in the Community Safety Partnerhip works together to prevent crime.

The survey is available at

The partnership includes the council, police, the fire brigade and other organisations.
