Community safety

Islington council, Social Landlords and Islington Police are working together to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

As well as traditional crime prevention and reduction, community safety includes looks at quality of life issues which are not necessarily criminal.

We put victims at the heart of the response to crime and anti-social behaviour and give professionals the flexibility they need to deal with any given situation. 

In order to bring criminals to justice you must report crime.

  • In an emergency dial 999. You should do this if you think there is an immediate threat to life or property

  • If it is not an emergency call 101. If it doesn’t require an immediate police response, or the crime has already taken place.  You can also make an online report.

  • To report a crime anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111

  • If you are deaf, or hard of hearing a text phone is available on 18000

  • You can find out more about policing in your local area including local crime figures here.
