Crime and Security

  • The Youth Justice Service

    The Youth Justice Service works with young people aged between 10 and 17 years who have offended or are likely to do so.

  • Reporting anti-social behaviour

    Use the relevant advice to report anti-social behaviour, however before doing so we recommend that you read our definition of anti-social behaviour.

  • Watch schemes

    Watch schemes are a good way of local residents helping their communities to stay safe; having up to date information about incidents in your area can aid you in becoming more aware of personal, property and vehicle safety.

  • Safety information and advice

    General safety information and advice covering distraction burglary, vehicle crime, student safety, home crime prevention and personal safety.

  • Gating orders

    A gating order allows a public highway to be restricted using a gate or other suitable barrier. It does not close off the highway permanently or remove its status as a public right of way.

  • Fire safety legislation

    The legislation to ensure a move towards greater emphasis on fire prevention in all non-domestic premises, including the voluntary sector and self-employed people with premises separate from their homes.

  • Gypsy and traveller crime and abuse reporting

    Like all sections of society, Gypsies and Travellers are sometimes the victims of criminal activity. It is no more acceptable for Gypsies and Travellers to be victims of crime than it is for other members of society. It is therefore vital that all criminal activity is reported.

  • Report unauthorised gypsy & traveller encampments

    There is a consistent, county wide approach to managing Unauthorised Encampments within Warwickshire. This approach aims to ensure that the local communities and the travelling communities are treated fairly.

  • Bullying

    The Family Information Service runs an anti-bullying helpline for parents and carers. If your child is being bullied and you want advice on what to do, call the helpline on 0845 090 8044 or 01926 742274.
