The ASB Service consists of 17 members of staff who work collectively, and in partnership with other agencies, to tackle crime and ASB across Stockport, Over a number of years, the service has evolved significantly and is now not just tackling incidents of ASB, which is often associated with youths or loud music etc. A large part of the work undertaken by the service involves tackling wider issues including organised criminals, cuckooing and exploitation, county lines, hate crime, domestic abuse and other criminal activity. The service plays a critical role in keeping neighbourhoods safe and delivers a CCTV service as well as selling services commercially to other organisations, within Stockport and beyond. 

In order to reflect the diverse remit of the service it is being renamed the “Safer Neighbourhoods Team”. The change will see changes to the job titles of some officers within the team and will instil confidence in customers and partners that SHG is a key player contributor to the wider aims and objectives of the One Safer Stockport Partnership.
