Police and partner agencies have been speaking to women and girls in Ramsgate about what they think can be done to help them feel safer in public.
During the evening of Saturday 25 November 2023 an event was held in the town centre, which saw Kent Police joined by local councillors, Kent Police Cadets and Thanet District Council staff in order to speak to residents and those who visit the town.
A hub was also set up in Harbour Parade to offer alarms, crime prevention advice and information about initiatives aimed at keeping people safe.
The views gathered throughout the evening will help to shape the future work carried out by the partner agencies to reduce the risk of violence against women and girls.
Sergeant Jason Hills of Thanet Community Safety Unit said: ‘Thank you to everyone who took the time to stop and tell us their views on what could be done to help reduce their fear of becoming a victim of crime when out and about. Some suggestions included areas where lighting could be improved. ‘We will now collate the information given and use it to build on the positive work already done across the county to help women and girls feel safe in public.’
