Safer 6 in your town

Safer 6 banner

Our annual autumn six-week Safer 6 campaign runs across our six towns.

Organisations target their efforts and provide extra reassurance during the darker nights, fireworks and bonfire season – a time when crime and anti-social behaviour can often rise.

This builds on their close work together day in, day out throughout the year through the Safer Sandwell Partnership to make Sandwell a safer and Safer 6 star yellowcleaner.

Sandwell Council is leading this year’s campaign with support from Sandwell Police, West Midlands Fire Service, schools and a range of partner organisations and community/voluntary groups including Litterwatch, Sandwell Crime Prevention Panel and Agewell.

Our 2018 campaign will focus on:

  • Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour
  • Supporting young people
  • Tackling environmental issues
  • Working with partner organisations and local people

Each town will have a focus week with activities and events:

You can follow the campaign on Twitter using the #Safer6 hashtag and read the results from our 2017 campaign.
