West Mercia police, Ludlow and Clee unitary councillors, along with Ludlow and Shropshire Councils, are launching a new initiative to tackle low-level crime across the Ludlow area. The Safer Ludlow project also aims to help people feel safer in their homes and when they are out and about in the town. The project will also encourage local businesses to improve their security. Councillors will meet weekly with council officials and police officers to discuss any issues with crime and antisocial behaviour around the town. Other agencies, including housing associations and health services, will join the team when their expertise and knowledge is needed.
