Luton Borough Council
25/02/2020 - Community safety on the agenda
Luton Council’s Crime and Disorder Committee will meet immediately following the meeting of the council’s Overview and Scrutiny Board, which starts at 6pm in Committee Room 3 at the Town Hall on Monday 2 March 2020.
The committee will discuss crime and community safety issues in Luton and will be an opportunity for the 13 elected councillors to review the work of the Community Safety Partnership carried out locally to tackle community safety issues in Luton.
Police and council representatives will be present to provide information and answer any questions raised by the committee.
Cllr Anna Pedersen, Chair of the Crime and Disorder Committee, said: “This is an opportunity for local residents to hear about the work of the Community Safety Partnership and the Police to ensure that Luton is a safer place to live.”
Evidence received on the day will help the committee to decide whether to make recommendations that could inform and shape how these issues are addressed.
Cllr Pederson continued, “As members of scrutiny committees, we want to be able to work closely with the community and in particular identify how community confidence in reporting crime can be increased.”
The committee will review the work of the Community Safety Partnership over the past year, as well as their Business Plan for the current year to assess their effectiveness in order to decide if any changes might be appropriate.
Members of the public are welcomed to attend. If you would like to attend, kindly send an email to [email protected]
