Hampshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, Simon Hayes, visited Fareham to find out more about the work of the Community Safety Partnership (CSP) in the Borough.
The first part of his visit was at Cams Hill School, where pupils were given the chance to ask him about crime issues and discuss their concerns. He also met with local police officers.
Mr Hayes then went on to spend time with members of the youth offending team, integrated offender management, transform and the community safety team. Simon visited staff and clients at Fareham's women's refuge and learnt more about the work of our family outreach services.
Mr Hayes said: "I've been very impressed with Fareham's Community Safety Partnership; the different agencies are working together with one purpose. The work that's done is innovative and successful to protect the residents from harm. There are social problems that need to be addressed in the community in Fareham and the CSP supports people, addresses those problems and tries to reduce reoffending."
Chairman of the CSP, Cllr Arthur Mandry, said: "I hope that it has been of value to the Police and Crime Commissioner to see at first-hand the work of the Community Safety Partnership. It's a good example of the Police working alongside the Council, and other organisations and agencies, to make the Borough a safer place to be."
