Crime prevention and community safety

One of the Council's priorities is to create safer communities. These pages contain information on the range of services helping to achieve this.

Antisocial behaviour and nuisance

Antisocial behaviour is defined as Acting in a manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household'. This may include people drinking in the street, persistent security alarms, noise from neighbours, vandalism or cars parked illegally.


Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is in use throughout Calderdale and a Code of Practice ensures that data protection principles are complied with.

Community safety

Calderdale Council's approach to achieving the targets set out in the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act.

Have a safe night out

Stay safe, drink responsibly: simple measures for having an enjoyable but sociable Christmas.

Preparing for emergencies

Every family needs to plan for what might happen in the event of an emergency, such as a flood or fire. A few minutes thinking about it now could make a big difference if the unexpected happens.

Safe places scheme

A scheme to increase the safety and confidence of vulnerable people when they visit Halifax Town Centre.
