Campaign Against Summer Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour Launched in Stockport

Stockport Council leader Sue Derbyshire

The Safer Stockport Partnership (SSP) has launched a three month ‘Summer Safety’ campaign aimed at reducing crime and anti-social behaviour across the borough.

The ‘Summer Safety’ campaign, which is running throughout June, July and August,  will include a series of initiatives aimed at providing the public with the information they need to protect themselves from criminal and anti-social behaviour during the holiday period whether they are staying at home or going away.

The four keys themes of the initiative are raising awareness of domestic abuse and alcohol throughout the World Cup, Healthy Holidaying, Crime Prevention and Keeping Stockport Safe.

Councillor Sue Derbyshire, leader of Stockport Council, said: “The SSP has worked very effectively providing crime reduction in Stockport. The 2014 ‘Summer Safety’ campaign aims to build on this success and show how residents can help themselves to stay safe this summer and not be a victim of crime.”

The partnership includes Stockport Council, Greater Manchester Police and Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service.
