Tackling crime and preventing it is best achieved when all the relevant agencies and the local community work together

Local crime solutions

People often think of the police as the only agency involved in tackling crime. But crime and threats to community safety often touch people’s lives in complex ways and usually have multiple causes.

This complexity means that tackling crime and, crucially, preventing it from happening in the first place, is best achieved when all the relevant agencies and the local community work together to develop local solutions to local issues. 

London is a uniquely diverse and complex environment and the capital’s 33 local authorities, who both know and democratically represent their communities, are uniquely placed to work closely with the police, local people, businesses and voluntary and community organisations to promote public protection and tackle crime.
