Safer Saltash The aim of Safer Saltash is to improve community safety and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour by targeting persistent problem places and people within the geographical area and work with communities, partners and the business and voluntary sectors to develop sustainable solutions

Safer Saltash provides continued support to communities

Safer Saltash facilitates and supports a co-ordinated multi-agency approach to community safety issues to improve feelings of safety and public reassurance, reduce the risk of harm to the community and protect vulnerable groups.  Safer Saltash involves community members in the work of the partnership and encourages social inclusion and community participation through being part of the problem solving process and having a sense of pride in Saltash.

Based on the evidence presented in the Saltash Town Profile and feedback from the Residents Survey, Safer Saltash has identified the following community safety priorities for the town:

Our priorities:

These community safety priorities are addressed through the live delivery plan.  Progress is measured through achievement of quarterly and annual milestones over the lifetime of the plan and key deliverables/outcomes are reported to the Safer Cornwall Partnership.

What we have achieved:

Safer Saltash continues to meet virtually every four weeks to ensure that regular dynamic intelligence and updates about emerging community safety, crime and antisocial behaviour across the town is fed in and acted upon. This year we have:

During National Hate Crime Week in October 2023, Safer Saltash delivered a ‘Say NO to Hate Crime’ campaign with over 65 businesses, traders and organisations in the town.  Hundreds of windows in Saltash town centre, taxis and community buses are now displaying the Safer Cornwall ‘Say NO to Hate Crime’ sticker that also contains a QR code to the Devon and Cornwall Police reporting hate crime page.  This is the first stage of a wider hate crime initiative that will feature a celebration of diversity event in the New Year that will aim to bring together Saltash residents to celebrate difference through food, music and sport
