Safe Newcastle is the Community Safety Partnership and Drug Action Team for Newcastle upon Tyne. Our vision is:
"To create a safe Newcastle by tackling crime, alcohol, drugs, anti-social behaviour and their impact. By working together we will develop effective, sustainable solutions to local concerns, improve confidence and build stronger communities".
Safe Newcastle would like to let you know what we are doing to make our city safer for us all.
Across Newcastle there were over 1,700 fewer victims of crime last year, but we know that crime is still something that concerns you.
We are committed to continue the good work and make sure the number of victims continues to fall. To help us do this we put together a plan of action each year. This sets our how we will reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and make you feel safer where you live and when you are out and about.
To make sure what we have planned to tack the things you are worried about, we spoke to many of you about your main crime and community safety concerns.
We also studied information about crime figures from the police and other partners so we know what sort of crimes are taking place and where and how community safety issues in Newcastle are changing.
