Fear of Crime survey

We want to understand your thoughts on crime and how safe you feel.


Colchester Borough Council is keen to understand people’s feelings around public safety. In this online survey, we want to know your views on crime and anti-social behaviour.

The results of the Fear of Crime survey, which runs from 21 July 2021 for four weeks, will help inform future priorities and actions in the borough.

The 25-question survey covers several crime and public safety concerns, both real and perceived. It can be completed online here.

Paper copies will also be available at four sites: Leisure World; Shrub End Community Centre; Kingsland Church, and C360 Community Café (Primary Care Centre). Completed surveys can be submitted in the ballot boxes provided at each location.
