Barnsley's residents can give their views on crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough, in a survey created by The Safer Barnsley Partnership Board (SBPB).
SBPB is a joint partnership between Barnsley Council, South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, National Probation Trust, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Barnsley Clinical Commissioning Group. Together they work with housing associations, local businesses and voluntary/community organisations to achieve a shared vision: “Barnsley people and communities are safe and feel safe, able to contribute to community life and take responsibility for their actions and how they affect others.’’
Through the survey, the partnership hopes to understand the public’s view of crime and anti-social behaviour in the borough. This information will be used to plan the next set of priorities that the Partnership will focus on in 2020-2021.
Cllr Jenny Platts, Cabinet Spokesperson for Communities, said: “I would encourage everyone to take part in this survey. The information given helps the partnership to see the full picture of what residents are experiencing and help them to build resources and plans that tackle local issues, helping to build a better Barnsley.”
Residents can give their views by visiting https://surveys.barnsley.gov.uk/s/MRESF/. Residents who don’t have access to the internet can visit their local library where they can access the online survey.
The survey can be completed before midnight on Tuesday 3 September.
