We asked

We asked residents to complete a survey to understand their concerns and priorities for safety in the borough.

You said

Residents provided their perceptions on policing, types of crime, and specific areas of concern in the borough.

We did

Community Safety used the results as one of the data sets to infrom its' Community Safety Needs Assessment and in turn its Community Safety Strategy. The Community Safety Needs Assessment is available on the counicl website here:

The Community Safety Strategy is planned to be signed off in January 2021 and then wll also be made publicly available.


The purpose of this survey is to ask residents their views about community safety issues such as crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour amongst other local issues, to help identify priorities across Sutton.

Why your views matter

Sutton Council and the Metropolitan Police in Sutton work closely together in a unique partnership to improve community safety in the borough. Both Council and Police carry out regular research and engagement with residents and communities to find out about local issues and concerns.

It is our objective to work with residents and partner organisations to provide exceptional community safety services and to make Sutton the safest borough where residents can enjoy the best quality of life in London.

This community safety survey is being carried out across Sutton to inform our Community Safety Strategy and the purpose is to find out what issues residents consider to be their highest priority at present. Feedback from this survey will be looked at in conjunction with the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) priorities for Sutton and locally reported crime across the Borough priorities identified by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime.  Priorities will then be set accordingly.    

What happens next

An analysis of the survey will be broken down in the new year (February 2020) and will be used to inform the Community Safety Strategy and priorities of the Community Safety Partnership going forward.
