Safer Kingston Partnership
From RBK press office
As the nights draw in and Kingston comes alive with the sound of university and college students, the next few months will be a busy time for the Safer Kingston Partnership.
The Partnership works hard to reduce crime, disorder and substance abuse in Kingston. Made up of organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors, the Partnership is led by members of Kingston Council, Metropolitan Police, NHS Kingston, Metropolitan Police Authority and the London Fire Brigade.
Safer Kingston News
This month the Partnership will be launching a newsletter which will be delivered to all households in the borough. The newsletter provides details of the Partnership’s Crime, Disorder and Substance Misuse Reduction Strategy 2008/2011, a review of the crime figures for 2008/2009 and a survey designed to give residents an opportunity to comment and influence future strategies.
The survey can be completed online at http://www.kingston.gov.uk/reducing_crime or for a hard copy please contact the Safer Kingston Partnership on 020 8547 5033. The closing date for responses is 15th November 2009.
Stay Safe in Kingston
Campaigns such as the Stay Safe in Kingston posters are just one of the initiatives that the Safer Kingston Partnership has created to reinforce the importance of keeping yourself and each other safe within the Royal Borough.
The brightly coloured posters, which feature a ‘touch screen’ mobile phone, have been up in the town centre over the last month and focus on the following safety tips:
* Don’t become a victim of burglary
* Keep a close watch on valuables-
* Stick with a friend when out at night
* Keep unnecessary noise to a minimum
Kingston University have also featured the posters in the university buses and if you would like to see a copy visit the Safer Kingston Partnership website http://www.kingston.gov.uk/safer_kingston_partnership. A festive version of the poster will appear in “Scene” magazine which is next distributed in December across west London.
