Community Safety Survey
The Safer Maidstone Partnership is a group of agencies that work together to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and drug and alcohol misuse in Maidstone Borough.
The Partnership, co-chaired by Alison Broom, Chief Executive of Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) and Chief Inspector Gary Woodward of Kent Police, is made up of responsible authorities (those bodies for whom membership of the Community Safety Partnership is a statutory obligation) and many community, voluntary and private sector partners. Collectively we work to deliver the CSP Plan, forming specialist sub-groups and measurable action plans that deliver against high level outcomes for our priority themes.
For 2019-22 these themes are:
- Protecting our communities against serious, violent and organised crime (including modern-day slavery)
- Keeping children and young people safe
- Reducing the harm caused by domestic abuse (including stalking)
- Reducing the impact of substance misuse on our community
- Safeguarding people whose mental health makes them vulnerable to becoming a victim or where it leads to an impact on the wider community
Each year we review what is important to local people so that we know what we need to do to make people feel safer.
Please tell us what you think is important in keeping Maidstone safe.
