For the purposes of this chapter and to help clarify the role of local authorities, the term ‘community safety’ can be defined as follows (Ekblom 2001: 5): an aspect of the quality of life … a state of existence in which people, individually or collectively, are sufficiently free from a range of real and perceived hazards including crime and related misbehaviour; are able to cope with those which they do experience; and are sufficiently protected from their consequences if unable to cope alone and to enable them to pursue the necessities of their social and economic lives, exercise their skills and create and enjoy wealth in the widest sense.

Historical perspective Local government has traditionally had a key responsibility in providing local services and support. This sort of provision has historically been within either a national or a regional framework but today it is central government that provides the framework nationally. It is interesting to note, at a time when a return to a regional agenda was recently rejected in the north-east of England, that the concept of regional governance actually dates back to medieval times when lords had rights over the local population (Triggle 2004: 4) and social control was implemented locally.
