Fewer than 10% of people in Dover feel unsafe in the town according to a Fear of Crime Survey.

Successful partnership working has also helped to achieve a 15% reduction in reported crime over the last year.

The performance of the Dover District Community Safety Partnership has been congratulated by the Government Office for the South East, (GOSE).

These figures are taken from the results and performance of the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership Strategy 2005-2008.

Nadeem Aziz, Chairman of the Dover District Community Safety Partnership, said: “These results are excellent and whilst the partnership is justifiably proud of the results, the real measure of success is the 15% reduction in the number of victims of crime."
