Everyone deserves to live in a safe place. Research indicates that Ashford has the best success rates in crime reduction in the country.

  • Ashford's incident rates a third below the national average.
  • Ashford works hard to ensure the community feels it can live and work in a crime-free environment. Initiatives are in place to support those most at risk.
  • The Community Safety Unit works together with other key agencies to review crime and disorder in the area, develop and implement a strategy for resolving locally identified crime and disorder issues.
  • Ashford is active in promoting and implementing Community Safety beyond crime prevention, detection and reduction. It is also about anti-social behaviour, home security, fire safety, street cleansing, fly tipping, noise problems, dog fouling, litter, vandalism, abandoned vehicles and much more.
