How can we improve security for our citizens?

Trust between residents in Helsingborg is lower than in most comparable cities, which might explain why feelings of security is also lower than the average.

Research shows that a large part of resident security is due to the trust people feel in the other residents of the area in which they live. This is, in turn, determined by one’s own life situation and how much community and togetherness one feels with one’s neighbours. How do we create safe urban environments and unlock a sense of community that strengthens trust and security within our neighbourhoods?
