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 as the nights draw in – 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.

The 10th annual Safer 6 campaign ran for six weeks from Saturday 7 September to Sunday 20 October 2019.

Read a round-up of the results so far from this year's campaign. This is just a snapshot as results are still coming in.

Each town had a focus week with activities and events:

The key themes of this year's campaign were:

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

Follow the campaign on Twitter using the #Safer6 and #SaferSandwell hashtags.

Sandwell Council led this year’s campaign with support from Sandwell Police, West Midlands Fire Service and a wide range of partner organisations and community groups.
