What is community safety?

The feeling of being safe and secure within one's own home, workplace or a public area is an obvious essential element of Community Safety.

It involves the protection of everyone's right to live in, work in, or simply visit Aberdeenshire in confidence, without fear for their own or other peoples' well being, and includes the protection of their property.

Community Safety can be about:

  • preventing crime and the opportunity for it to be committed;
  • creating safe communities for residents and visitors;
  • generally improving upon the quality of life for everyone.

But, it is also about:

developing partnerships between the council, police, fire brigade, coastguard, local businesses, organisations, other service providers, voluntary agencies and, most importantly, local communities.
