Safer Southampton

Southampton is getting safer every year. Crime figures for 2013/14 show crime rates continue to fall in the city, improved detection rates and a significant reduction in anti-social behaviour incidents with a reduction of 18% on the previous year.

Working with you and our partners in the Safe City Partnership we are:

  • Reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in key locations
  • Reducing the harm caused by drugs and alcohol
  • Reducing repeat victimisation, working to
  • Reduce re-offending, and
  • Reduce youth crime

In these pages you can find out about what we are doing to reduce crime and the fear of crime and how you can keep safe and get involved to help create a Safer Southampton. You can also access our YouTube channel and Facebook groups by following the links on the left side of this page.
