Thurrock Community Safety Partnership
The Thurrock Community Safety Partnership has been working together since 1998 to change people’s lives for the better.
We want to make Thurrock safer for anyone who lives works or visits the borough.
Our five key priorities for the next three years are to:
- Reduce Anti-social Behaviour
- Improve Community Safety through Education, Engagement and Prevention
- Reduce Re-offending
- Reduce Serious Crime and Domestic Abuse
- Tackle Hate Crime (race, disability, sexual orientation and religion)
BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY
New school term – new bag, new uniform, new equipment. Don’t forget to take sensible precautions to protect personal belongings.
“Lock it in UR Pocket” – a campaign created by Gable Hall School pupils – remains a clear message to young people to help protect items especially mobile phones.
Cycling is a cost effective and healthy option for young people to travel to school but bikes should also be security marked and securely locked with a strong chain which goes through the frame of the bike.
Security marking of all personal items is also a useful way to help protect belongings like laptops and bikes. The UV pens should be used to mark items with a postcode and door number to help police track them if they are stolen.
