Do you help?  Can you help?  Will you help?

It is the responsibility of everyone who lives and works in Swindon to tackle the causes of Crime and Anti-social Behaviour. Please choose to do something about it.

Whilst we have agencies like the Police, Local Authority and the courts to deal with the enforcement side of crime, the people who live and work in Swindon play a crucial role in Keeping Swindon Safe.

Swindon, compared nationally, is one of the safest places to live and work.  We believe this is because people choose to take responsibility and put in place simple measures to avoid becoming a victim of crime.   It is your continued vigilance that helps us to keep our crime rate low.

I am sure that we all do things every day to ensure we live in safe and clean neighbourhoods, for example;

  • Report anything suspicious to the police
  • Secure our properties
  • Keep an eye out for neighbours

There are just a few examples and I am sure that there are many more things happening out in our communities that help us to help you Keep Swindon Safe.
