Community safety is about feeling safe, whether at home, in the street or at work. It relates to quality of life and being able to pursue and obtain the fullest benefits from your domestic, social and economic life without fear or hindrance from crime and disorder.

Community safety involves various agencies working together with the local community to tackle persistent crime and disorder. This work involves voluntary organisations, and above all, individuals and families who want to make their neighbourhoods better places to live.

Community safety is important to make Edinburgh a safer place to live, work in or visit. Feeling safe improves the quality of life of the people living in our neighbourhoods, it helps make Edinburgh an attractive place to work or have a business, and enhances the experience for those who visit the city.
