Safer Crawley Partnership wants your views

Published

The Safer Crawley Partnership is asking for residents’ help to identify what community safety issues are important for Crawley.

Each year the Partnership carries out an assessment to identify what issues it needs to focus on over the next 12 months and this survey will help inform this piece of work alongside current crime trends.

The Safer Crawley Partnership is made up of organisations including Crawley Borough Council, Sussex Police, West Sussex County Council, Crawley CCG and Probation and works to reduce crime and disorder, substance misuse, anti-social behaviour and reduce reoffending.

The short survey asks:

  • What are you most concerned about in your neighbourhood?
  • What crimes do you think should be treated as priorities?
  • Are you worried about becoming a victim of crime?
  • Have you been a victim of crime in the past 12 months?

Councillor Michael Jones, Chair of the Safer Crawley Partnership and Cabinet member for Public Protection and Community Engagement at Crawley Borough Council, said: “We want your views so please take a few moments to complete this survey and tell us what matters most to you.

“The Safer Crawley Partnership needs to understand your priorities for reducing crime and increasing community safety so we can target our resources to help make the town safer.”

You can have your say by visiting www.crawley.gov.uk/communitysafety until 28 February.

Urgent appeal as £5k reward offered to find violent man who ransacked Crawley shop and assaulted child

Published

on

Police have launched an urgent appeal and offered a reward of up to £5,000 for information leading to the capture of Jordan Charles.

Charles has links to Crawley and Bexhill in East Sussex as well as Croydon in South London.

The appeal for anonymous information has been launched to urgently find 23-year-old Jordan Charles, who is wanted for questioning over a series of violent incidents in Sussex.  

A string of offences in recent months includes: violence and robbery; threatening revellers with a knife in Brighton; using racist and homophobic language; spitting saliva and blood at police; ransacking a takeaway in Crawley and attacking a customer; attacking staff at another Crawley restaurant with a glass and a metal chain dog lead wrapped around his hand; punching and kicking a woman to the floor outside a nightclub; assaulting a 12-year-old girl who had come to the aid of her mother and aunt during a parking dispute.

He has also failed to appear in court.

Jordan Charles is black, about 5’ 9″, of medium build and with black hair. He is known to have links to Crawley, and is thought to still frequent the area.

Glenys Balchin, Crimestoppers Regional Manager said:

“This man must be found before anyone else comes to harm, which is why we are making an urgent appeal to the public in Sussex, Surrey and south London to help find his location. Jordan Charles is dangerous and the allegations against him are serious.
 
“It is important to remind people that assisting somebody wanted for questioning over a crime can lead to prosecution. We are appealing to anybody who may know the whereabouts of Jordan Charles to urgently tell our charity what you know 100% anonymously. Always. You can call our UK Contact Centre, which is open 24/7, on freephone number 0800 555 111 or you can use our simple and secure anonymous online form.
 
“Crimestoppers has been taking crime information since our charity was formed over 32 years ago. Every day over a thousand people trust our charity with their anonymous information. Nobody will know you contacted us, only you.”
