Safer East Lothian

Community Safety is one of the strands of Community Planning in East Lothian. East Lothian Community Safety Partnership was established in 1997 with the key purpose of making East Lothian a safer place. A great deal of progress has been made since then, and the Community Safety Partnership is now well established and highly effective.

Current Community Safety priorities are as follows:

  • reducing crime
  • reducing the fear of crime
  • tackling antisocial behaviour
  • working with young people
  • providing a safer environment
  • improving communication and consultation

Community Safety Partners include:

  • East Lothian Council
  • Police Scotland
  • Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service
  • NHS Lothian
  • East Lothian Voluntary Organisation Network (ELVON)
  • East Lothian Association of Community Councils
  • East Lothian Tenants and Residents Panel
  • East Lothian Violence Against Women Forum
