Safer Maidstone Partnership

Safer Maidstone Partnership

The Safer Maidstone Partnership is the strategic crime and disorder reduction partnership for Maidstone and works to create a safe environment for the borough by reducing crime, disorder and Anti-Social Behaviour.

Priorities

The partnership delivers the Community Safety Partnership Plan for Maidstone. This reflects the information contained within the annual strategic assessment, through the five priorities:

  • protecting our communities against serious, violent and organised crime (including modern-day slavery)
  • keeping children and young people safe
  • reducing the harm caused by domestic abuse (including stalking)
  • reduce the impact of substance misuse on our community
  • safeguard people whose mental health makes them vulnerable to becoming a victim or where it leads to an impact on the wider community

The partnership makes sure the Community Safety Unit and other partners direct their resources and activities to support these priorities.

Community Safety Unit

The Community Safety Unit (CSU) is made up of different agencies working in one place.

Organisations include officers from Maidstone Borough Council, Kent Police, Kent Community Wardens, Golding Homes and the Integrated Offender Management Unit (IOM).

The CSU is not open to the public, but if you would like information on community safety where you live you can visit our Advice and Information page or you can visit the Kent Police website.
