Crime and disorder
Although the area of Huntingdonshire is generally a safe place to live, work and spend your leisure time, Huntingdonshire District Council is committed to working in partnership to reduce the levels of crime and disorder, and the fear of crime in the local area.
The Community Safety Team at Huntingdonshire District Council works in partnership with a wide range of other organisations including: Cambridgeshire Constabulary, Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service, registered social landlords, Cambridgeshire County Council and other agencies.
The terms ‘crime prevention’, ‘crime reduction’ and ‘community safety’ all have similar meanings and to avoid any confusion the term ‘community safety’ is used by this authority (the Community Safety Team does not handle any issues surrounding safety in the home or road safety; if you would like advice or information about road safety you can contact the Road Safety Team at Cambridgeshire County Council on 01223 717385).
