Have your say on crime and community safety in Milton Keynes

Milton Keynes Council and the Safer MK partnership is asking local people for input on what MK’s crime and community safety priorities should be.

The annual crime and community survey, which is open until 31 January 2021, will help Safer MK and its partners understand what’s important to local people about tackling crime, and informs Safer MK’s future work to make Milton Keynes a safer place to live, work and visit for everyone.

Almost 3,000 people from across Milton Keynes completed last year’s survey.  Among local peoples’ priorities were tackling violent crime and raising awareness of scamming, as well as helping to inform a campaign to improve people’s knowledge of domestic violence and abuse and how to get help.

The Safer MK community safety partnership is made up representatives from Milton Keynes Council, Thames Valley Police, Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and Her Majesty’s Probation.

Cllr Lauren Townsend, MK Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, said: “We’re working together to make our city a safer place to live for everyone.

“Your feedback will help shape our future work, and by getting involved we can take action on issues most affecting you.  The survey is open to everyone, regardless of age, so please share your thoughts with us.”

The survey is anonymous and should only take ten minutes to complete.  It’s open from 1 December 2020 until 31 January 2021, and is available online.

Due to the pandemic, this year the survey will only be available online.  Should you need any assistance accessing or completing it, please call 01908 691691 or email safermk@milton-keynes.gov.uk.
