The Safer West Sussex Partnership (SWSP) is asking West Sussex residents and businesses for their understanding, experiences and access to support in relation to crime through an online survey.
Developed on behalf of the SWSP by the Community Safety and Wellbeing Team, the survey is designed to fulfil one of the key statutory responsibilities of the Partnership to consult residents annually on its priorities.
In a change to the usual annual consultation the team will be conducting short themed surveys spread across the year which are aimed at gathering more detailed information regarding the views and experiences of respondents.
The focus for this survey is Child Sexual Exploitation, Preventing Extremism and Radicalisation, ‘Cuckooing’ and Modern Slavery.
The Partnership is focusing on these priorities as they have been identified through a combination of national and local evidence and are often seen as ‘hidden crimes’ due to their signs and indicators being harder to spot.
The aim of the survey is to inform residents on the types and nature of these threats whilst at the same time gathering valuable community intelligence in order to target activity and resources effectively.
We are encouraging as many people as possible to take part in the SWSP survey which should take around 10 minutes to complete.

The survey will close on the 10th of June 2018.
