Community Involvement

Your involvement

SoSafe relies on community support to make Stevenage safer for us all. The partnership regularly conducts research to gauge public opinion about how safe people feel and what concerns them about their neighbourhoods. This feedback is taken seriously and helps SoSafe to set targets for the future. It also ensures that the actions of the partnership reach every street in Stevenage.

Councillors

Your local councillors feed issues back to SoSafe. They can be contacted via the council, or you can visit their regular surgeries.

Police

Stevenage police officers and police community support officers (PCSOs) are the most visible face of SoSafe. Every area of Stevenage has a dedicated ward constable and PCSOs to provide visible patrols, both during the day and after dark.  Your Neighbourhood Policing Team aims to engage with local residents and establish what community safety issues matter the most to them. The teams hold regular Street Meets to enable members of the community to have an informal chat about safety concerns. See the link on the right for more information about your neighbourhood policing team.

Neighbourhood Watch

With 100,000 Neighbourhood Watch memberships in Hertfordshire, it's no wonder that local residents have become the eyes and ears of Stevenage, providing feedback about community safety problems. Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators meet regularly and report local issues back to SoSafe partners. To find out how you can get involved with Neighbourhood Watch, you can visit their website here.

Fix My Street

When we ask local people what they want for Stevenage one of their top priorities is nearly always cleaner and greener neighbourhoods. The Fix my Street service is one way in which we can deal with environmental issues quickly and efficiently.

You can report problems like broken glass in a playground on the Fix My Street app or online here. If the problem is one that a partner agency can help with, such as a broken street light dumped rubbish which could be a fire hazard, then it will be passed on straight away to the relevant section or organisation.
