Knowsley launches the Safer Communities Service

by Gemma Melling

This autumn Knowsley Council launched its Safer Communities Service, a multi-agency team dedicated to identifying and addressing the causes of crime and anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhoods.

Working with representatives from Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, and housing association partners the service tackle issues relating to crime and anti-social behaviour, domestic abuse and environmental health.

A Knowsley Council spokesperson said: “The Safer Communities Service brings together existing teams with new ones to tackle anti-social and criminal behaviour in our borough. This co-ordinated approach supports the council’s priority of building safer communities with its residents.”

As part of this new service you may have noticed that the former Knowsley Dog Control and Environmental Enforcement service has re-branded itself on social media and online.

So whether you are looking for information about lost dogs and fly-tipping to crime prevention advice and awareness raising of Domestic Abuse, the new hub for information is now @SaferKnowsley on Twitter and the current Knowsley Dog Control and Environmental Enforcement Facebook page. Residents are encouraged to follow these accounts to get all the latest info.
