Safer Swansea is focussing on reducing violent crime, in particular alcohol-fuelled violence within the city centre.
Safer Swansea targets areas where violence is known to occur taking a multi-agency approach to make a real difference. The city centre at night is a key area.
The Call Time on Violent Crime operation has been run over the Christmas period for the last four years and achieved significant reductions in violence at that time. It uses innovations such as polycarbonate glasses, taxi marshals, police patrols and CCTV monitoring to prevent violence. However, efforts need to be made to make this work all year round, rather than certain times of the year.
