The CSNB has been at the forefront of police & community engagement in the London Borough of Camden for over 30 years.

Camden Safer Neighbourhood Board is a community-led charity that brings together the community, police and council with the aim of reducing crime and antisocial behaviour in Camden.

We oversee three main strands of activities:

  • Public meetings and community conversations – these provide residents from across Camden the chance to challenge the Police Borough Commander and senior officers from the Community Safety Partnership about crime (for further information on meetings and events click the ‘More info’ button in the Conversations box below).
  • Stop and Search – the Camden Stop and Search Monitoring Group meets four times a year. We also have a panel of 18 Camden Independent Youth Advisors with a keen interest in Stop and Search. (For further information about Stop and Search meetings click the menu above).
  • Camden Safer Neighbourhood Board Trustees – we hold six meetings a year where a small group of Trustees having been appointed by the CSNB hold the police and Partnership to account for performance in crime and antisocial behaviour. The Trustees oversee the work and set the policies for the CSNB.

Any community group in Camden with more than 10 members and a constitution can become members of the CSNB. The benefit of becoming members is that you can put your name forward to become a Trustee, plus you can have a say on who is appointed as Trustees. If you would like to represent your group on the CSNB please follow the link and complete the online application form.

We are keen to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening in your area. To do this we use:

  • Our email list – We currently have a list of over 600 groups and individuals that we use to provide updates and information on community safety. This is a FREE service and you can add your email address at the foot of this page.
  • Social media – We have big plans to expand our social network reach: currently only 272 ‘like’ our Facebook page and 931 ‘followers’ on Twitter. Please like or follow us on your social media platform of choice.

Want to help?

Membership of the CSNB is open to Camden based voluntary organisations with 10 or more members. We are looking for new members from across the borough. Just click the button below and complete the online application form.
