Crime, safety and anti-social behaviour

Crime and safety are issues of national importance and despite falling levels of recorded crime in recent years, it remains a primary concern for the people of Leeds.

Crime affects the lives of everybody - residents, businesses, visitors, students, commuters and investors alike. Reducing crime and disorder is a key element in improving the quality of life for the citizens of Leeds.

The Safer Leeds Partnership was formed under the provisions of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and our vision is for people to be able to live without fear for their own safety, or the safety of others. Our overall aim is to secure sustainable reductions in crime and disorder, and to address fear of crime in the Leeds district.
