A public consultation has been launched for residents to share their views on crime prevention measures in St Albans.

The consultation, which runs until March 31, involves completing a questionnaire on key issues such as drug dealing, burglary, protecting the vulnerable, and domestic abuse.

The St Albans Community Safety Partnership (CSP) will use this feedback as part of their 2024/25 strategy.

Councillor Jacqui Taylor, lead councillor for Housing and Community Safety, said: "I would urge people to complete this survey so they can have their say on how crime is being tackled in the district and where there may be room for improvement.

"Along with our partner organisations, including the police, we want to develop a strategy that is responsive to the concerns and needs of our residents.

"By completing the survey, you can shape our community safety plans for the year ahead."

Participants can complete the survey online via the dedicated webpage, and alternatives such as paper forms, large-print versions, or phone assistance are available for those unable to do so online.

The CSP, a collective of public agencies including St Albans City and District Council, the Police and Crime Commissioner and Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, has earmarked priorities for the upcoming year.

These include protecting communities, tackling anti-social behaviour, and effectively responding to emergencies.
