St Helens businesses are being invited to help shape crimefighting policies.
St Helens Council, along with Merseyside Police and the other local organisations that make up the Community Safety Partnership, are again running their annual community safety survey.
It’s an opportunity to tell the authorities about crime and anti-social behaviour in the areas where they live and do business.
Numerous types of crime and anti social behaviour are listed in the survey form, with respondants encouraged to say how much of a problem the activities are in their neighbourhood.
And it’s not just a paper exercise – as St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Protection and Safer Communities, Councillor Richard McCauley explains:
“The views of our residents are vital if we’re going to tackle these issues,” he said, “because the data we get back is used to shape the policies and determine the action taken to fight crime.
“We want to make St Helens a safe place to live, work and study – but we need everyone’s help to make that happen.”

The survey closes September 2012.
