Council toolkit in safety initiative

The Improvement and Development Agency has unveiled a fresh community safety initiative within its Connecting with Communities online toolkit.

The module offers tips and resources for councils’ comms departments and provides case studies of PR campaigns that have helped to reduce crime.

The initiative is backed by the Home Office Community Safety Unit, which is garnering feedback to draw up a wider picture of local authority best practice in communications.

The module was produced over the last two months by Grant Riches Communications senior consultant Lisa Dimbylow.

One case study in the module is Safer Swansea Partnership’s PR strategy, which keeps local people informed through activities such as regular crime columns in local media.
