Kent community safety agreement

Working together for a safer Kent

Our agreement sets out how we will work together with all our partners to address the key community safety priorities for Kent.

Law enforcement will always play a major part in community safety, but we believe that a lot can be done to prevent problems before they happen by addressing the root causes. We put a great deal of effort into:

  • supporting vulnerable people and their families
  • tackling issues of substance misuse
  • improving road safety
  • improving security of people's homes. 

Community safety can be improved by: 

  • creating stronger communities
  • helping people become active citizens
  • improving personal responsibility in the community.

Our agreement aims to address the needs of local communities but will also help to meet the objectives set out in the Government paper A new approach to fighting crime.
