The Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership is looking to recruit volunteer "Community Crime Fighters" to help make the Caerphilly county borough an even safer place to live.
As part of the "Justice Seen, Justice Done" initiative, of which the Caerphilly county borough is a pioneer area, the Community Crime Fighter initiative focuses on working with local residents who have an interest in community safety issues.
The Community Crime Fighters will act as the "eyes and ears" of the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership, and will play a vital role in combating anti social behaviour and further reducing levels of crime in the Caerphilly county borough.
The Community Crime Fighter events are being held on:
- Wednesday 3rd June – St Helen's Community Centre, Nantgarw Road, Caerphilly at 5:30pm
- Tuesday 16th June – White Rose Resource Centre, New Tredegar at 5:30pm
- Monday 22nd June – Moriah Chapel, Risca at 5:30pm
Representatives from agencies including Gwent Police, Gwent Probation Service, Tenancy Enforcement and Victim Support will be present at the events, to talk about the work currently being done in the Caerphilly county borough to tackle crime and anti social behaviour, and how local residents can become involved.
Cabinet member for the environment, Cllr Lyn Ackerman said, "The Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership is delighted to have been selected as a pioneer area for the Justice Seen, Justice Done initiative, of which the Community Crime Fighters initiative is a vital component.
The Community Crime Fighter initiative is aimed at residents who are interested in taking an active role in tackling crime and anti social behaviour in their communities.
I would really encourage residents with a genuine interest in community safety issues to come along to one of the forthcoming events and find out more about becoming a volunteer Community Crime Fighter.
Together we can work to make the Caerphilly county borough an even safer place to live, work and visit."
