Community safety

We've joined a number of initiatives and work with our partners to improve the safety in our communities.

Community Safety Partnership

The Community Safety Partnership is not a separate legal body in its own right. It is a way of working together:

  • Discussing issues
  • Enabling joint commissioning of activities to improve outcomes
  • Making the best use of partner resources

Find out more about the Community Safety Partnership .


Closed circuit television (CCTV) can help in the prevention and detection of crime. 

Allerdale Borough Council does not have any CCTV in public areas such as on roads, or shopping centres. Any CCTV in these areas are the responsibility of Cumbria Police.

We may have CCTV in our buildings. Contact our Information Governance Officer for more information on this.

Anti-social behaviour (ASB)

Anti-social behaviour can blight people's lives and we have a zero-tolerance attitude to it. This can be litter, flytipping, graffiti or noise.

Report anti-social behaviour to us

Threatening behaviour should be reported to the police on 999. You can find out more about anti-social behaviour on the Ask the Police website.

You can also find out about the Community Trigger process and alcohol consumption in public places .

Neighbourhood watch

Council Strategy design

Cumberland Council

On 1 April 2023 local government in Cumbria changed, with Cumberland Council providing all your council services.  

Don't worry though, your bins will be emptied as normal, and you'll still be able to speak to the same team about any enquiries to do with things like council tax, benefits, planning or any other service.

Find out more about the changes.

Keep up to date by finding and following the new council on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
