Report of the Executive Director Housing, Neighbourhoods, & Communities (Copy Attached).

 

Decision:

RESOLVED: That the Committee noted the work being undertaken by the Safer Communities Team and partners in relation to the Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy 2020-23.

 

Minutes:

78.1 Jo Player introduced the report starting on page 27 of the Agenda.

 

78.2 Councillor Simson was informed that:

 

·       Exact figures would be circulated regarding the numbers of taxi drivers that hadn’t completed the mandatory safeguarding training.

·       A lot of work has been completed in Preston Park and the Level regarding antisocial behaviour.

·       Operation Marble is the scheme run on Friday and Saturday nights and won’t be subsided until crime numbers are reduced.

·       Police work with door security to combat issues such as spiking.

·       There has been good progress to combat graffiti artists in the city, and the 3 month graffiti removal trial has been successful.

 

78.3 Stephanie Prior was informed that:

 

·       More information would be circulated about the access reporting centres have to the Police and Lawyers to assure victims that they are being helped as much as possible and to secure more prosecutions.

·       The Police are doing all they can to combat hate crimes and prosecute to the fullest extent.

 

78.4 Councillor Shanks raised that graffiti should be removed from the Council’s own buildings such as the closed café on the level before trying to remove graffiti from other buildings, and that the policies on drugs should be treated more as a public health issue.

 

78.5 Councillor Appich was informed that Brighton and Hove have been deprioritised as a Prevent Area so funding for those projects won’t be received from the Home Office, but options are being looked at about how to deliver the Prevent strategy going forward.

 

RESOLVED: That the Committee noted the work being undertaken by the Safer Communities Team and partners in relation to the Community Safety and Crime Reduction Strategy 2020-23.
