Merseyside Police safety survey

Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell is inviting residents to complete the Safer Streets Merseyside survey.

The survey aims to find out more about how the police can make Merseyside feel safer for women and girls. If you choose to take part, the survey will ask you about your experience of sexual harassment and abuse, what makes you feel unsafe and what can be done to make you feel safer.

Speaking about the initiative, Emily Spurrell said: “Tackling violence against women and girls is one of my priorities and one of the first steps in the process of eradicating it is to listen to women and girls in our community to better understand how and when they feel intimidated and frightened and what we can do to make public spaces safer for them.

“While this survey won’t provide all the answers or be a quick fix, it is the start of a much wider conversation with women about the work I will undertake with partners across the region to reduce the violence, abuse and harassment women and girls face day in and day out and bring about long-lasting change.”

The survey takes 10-minutes to complete and closes on Friday, 9 July.


The content within the survey has the potential to be triggering. If you feel you would benefit from support following this survey, a full list of all specialist services in Merseyside can be found at Victim Care Merseyside.
