Your South Community Safety Team is committed to tackling those everyday issues which may affect the quality of your life. We work with local residents, businesses, Lothian and Borders Police, and other community agencies to make the South Edinburgh a safer, cleaner, and more enjoyable place to live and work in.

The Council has a range of measures to tackle environmental crime, anti-social behaviour and other community safety issues, so our team will be able to give you the most appropriate advice and assistance.
The Council can also arrange a referral to a free mediation service to help resolve anti-social behaviour issues without involving the Police. Mediation helps to resolve conflicts between individuals or groups by providing an impartial third party to help guide constructive communication between those involved.
Environmental Wardens have powers to issue verbal warnings, statutory notices, written warnings and Fixed Penalty Notices for a number of environmental offences, or to report offenders to the Procurator Fiscal.
