ORGANISATIONS involved in tackling crime and anti-social behaviour were in Dunmow this week to mark Not in My Neighbourhood Week.
Representatives from agencies in Uttlesford's Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) spent the day speaking to members of the public on issues ranging from road safety to responsible dog ownership, while also answering any questions addressed to them by shoppers.
Visitors to the stand could pick up a broad range of information from organisations including the police and fire service, as well as officers from Essex County Council and Uttlesford District Council involved in areas such as housing, road safety, anti-social behaviour and safety services for the elderly.
UDC's Community Safety Office, Martin Ford, said: "This was about two things: it was a chance for the CDRP to talk about the work the partnership has done over the last 12 months.
"This is also about hearing people's concerns - finding out first-hand what we could be doing to make Uttlesford even safer."
Not in My Neighbourhood Week is a Home Office initiative that first took place in 2007, designed to increase awareness of and public confidence in the work of partnerships such as Uttlesford's CDRP.
