Community Safety Survey

What is the process behind the survey and what does it do?

Every two years since 2010, we train University of Portsmouth students to carry out a face to face survey with approximately 1,000 residents to seek their views and their experience of crime and anti-social behaviour in the city. It is an important source of information as it is collected directly from residents and does not rely on crimes or incidents having to be reported to the police or any other agency.

The survey contributes to the picture of crime and anti-social behaviour in the city and helps to inform the priorities and the multi-agency planning processes used to address them.
