Community Safety Survey May 2018

Island residents are being asked to complete a short survey about their thoughts on local crime priorities for the Island. This online survey, which is led by the Isle of Wight Community Safety Partnership (CSP), seeks views from everyone living and working on the Island.

The survey will help decide the work of the partnership, which is made up of partners including: 

  • Isle of Wight Council;
  • Hampshire Constabulary;
  • Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue;
  • National Probation Trust;
  • Hampshire Community Rehabilitation Company;
  • Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group.


The survey is part of the annual strategic assessment which collates information and data from all partners to identify the priorities in tackling crime and disorder on the Island.

In 2017, the CSP priorities included: reducing reoffending, violent crime, alcohol and drug related crime; anti-social behaviour; domestic abuse and sexual violence; supporting the government’s counter terrorism strategy and reducing acquisitive crime, which reflected the views of last year’s community safety survey.

We would welcome your views to help shape the 2018 priorites, please click here to take part in the online survey.

Opens: 09 April 2018

Closes: 5pm on 18 May 2018
