Crime is an issue that is once again on the rise, and from our experiences, is coming up more and more on the doorstep.
As part of our campaigning advice, we are launching an updated campaigning on crime pack today. It features suggested advice on what you should be campaigning on locally over the next few months.
This month we are suggesting you make sure crime features in your next Focus leaflet.

Regular Focus leaflets in a ward help to build communication between the local Lib Dem team and residents.
They show that the local Lib Dem team is working with the local community, resolving issues, keeping residents informed and listening to their concerns.
By campaigning on issues raised by residents and identified by the team, getting results for the local community, and reporting back these successes, Focus leaflets can play a significant role in encouraging community engagement and activity.
If you have already done a survey, make sure you are reporting back.
- The Hazel Grove team are currently delivering a crime survey (PDF) with a piece of targeted direct mail (PDF). So far they have had a really good number of responses. Lisa has kept residents updated on her campaign (her recent email).
- Cllr Ryan Langley in Hull has ensured residents knew about his recent meeting with the police with a letter to the press.
- Sutton Lib Dems ran a very successful campaign to save Sutton station and reported back.
We are really keen to have your feedback on the pack. Please let me know if you have used it and if you have any ideas or topics for future packs. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
