Felixstowe Town Council works closely with Suffolk Police on matters relating to Community Safety in a number of ways. We host the Safer Neighbourhood Team meetings at the Town Hall, support and maintain CCTV cameras in the town and regularly liaise with local officers to report matters of concern and discuss solutions to local issue.
The aims of Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) are to:
- Listen to you and identify your concerns.
- Work together to tackle the issues you have identified.
- Keeping you informed of our progress.
To achieve this, Felixstowe Town Council works in partnership with Suffolk Police and other organisations so that they are able to deliver a service that is visible, accessible and responsive to what local people need.
Each team holds community priority setting meetings, which are attended by the local police, County, District and Town Councillors, as well as representatives from health and educational organisations.
Issues addressed by local people are discussed at these meetings, and the top three priorities that need to be tackled are selected.
Each team is committed to keeping you updated on progress related to priorities in your local policing area, which they do in a number of ways, including regular updates on their local website pages.
