Horsham Labour protest against police cuts
Horsham Labour protest against police cuts

Horsham Labour are deeply concerned by rising levels of crime in the area. We firmly believe that a low crime rate can contribute to making our district a better place to live and will prioritise the reduction of crime in the area. This is our plan to keep Horsham safe.

  • Continue to campaign for more police officers on the beat and increase the number of Community Support Officers and Local Authority Wardens.

  • Work closely with other professionals to ensure safety for children and vulnerable adults by re-investing in youth work, including youth centres. We will use these facilities to help young people build new skills and friendships, and to identify and support them with drug and substance abuse.

  • We will put in place support through the provision of hostels and support for victims of domestic abuse, exploitation and crime.

  • Encourage Neighbourhood Watch schemes and appoint a named contact to champion their work and relay local issues back to the Council.

  • Make sure that when planning and landscaping our neighbourhoods that there are clear sight lines through wide, well-lit subways, footpaths and car parks. We will keep trees and bushes on public paths trimmed to help our community feel safer and reduce street crime.

  • Turn areas of unused waste land in to well-designed public areas to deter their use for anti-social and criminal activities.
