Community safety and crime prevention
Fife Community Safety Partnership was established in May 1998 to take forward Fife’s work on community safety.
We endeavour to ensure that people in Fife are safe from crime, disorder, danger and free from injury and harm; Fife’s communities are socially cohesive and tolerant and, are resilient and able to support individuals to take responsibility for their well-being.
We bring together staff from
- Fife Council;
- Police Scotland - Fife Division;
- Scottish Fire & Rescue Service - Fife area;
- NHS Fife;
- Voluntary and community organisations;
- Registered Social Landlords; and the
- business community.
To provide a local response, we operate monthly meetings with all relevant staff working in community safety in each of Fife’s 7 areas: Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy, Levenmouth, North East and South West Fife.
Each of our local teams, and staff working Fife-wide, work towards Making Fife’s Communities Safer, one of the long term aims within Fife’s Community Plan. Our outcomes for the next three years, held in our Community Safety Strategy, are:
- People feel safer
- Better support for victims
- Reduce crime and antisocial behaviour
- Reduce re-offending
- Less risk from injury in the home
- Less risk from fire
- Fewer people killed or seriously injured on the roads
We encourage anyone experiencing crime or antisocial behaviour, “Don’t Put Up With It, Report It!”
To report antisocial behaviour call 08451 55 00 22 (lines open Mon – Fri 8am – 8pm). Outwith these times call police on 101. In an emergency contact 999.
We also welcome feedback and suggestions on how to make Fife – and your local community – safer.
Plus, you can attend one of the regular community engagement meetings in your neighbourhood – see http://www.scotland.police.uk/your-community/fife/ and click on the map for details.
