Community safety and Crime Reduction Strategy 2020-2023

Decision Maker: Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee, Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


RESOLVED: That committee:


1.    Recommended to Full Council that it adopted the Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy 2020-2023 attached at Appendix 2.


2.    Noted this Strategy was developed prior to Covid19, and therefore asked that officers discuss with the partners to this strategy how together we can respond to the impact of Covid19 on community safety, crime and policing, in areas such as;

-       changes in domestic violence reporting and incidences during ‘lockdown,’ and the changing nature of support that may need to be provided

-       reports indicating increased incidences of abusive behaviour directed at essential workers, and support available

-       concerns regarding enforcement in the community, support for officers and the consistent application of government guidance


and requested that officers reported back to this committee on the work going on in this area.


3.    Authorised officers to prepare an addendum or briefing note in advance of Full Council to outline the implications of the ongoing Corona Virus crisis on the strategy.


4.    Requested an Officer report on the specific issue of anti-social behaviour on Hove seafront for the next meeting of this committee. The report would detail, but not be limited to, vandalism of beach huts and other seafront structure and by-law contraventions.
