What specific work is the Victims’ Commissioner undertaking to ensure the safety of women at night?

Specific work around the safety of women at night has been led by the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC) and the Night Czar, developing the Women’s Safety at Night charter and supporting tool. Three Women's Night Safety Summits have been held (in July 2017, July 2018 and July 2019) and approximately 350 organisations are signed up to the charter to date.

The Victims’ Commissioner is not focussed specifically on the safety of women at night but she is supportive of the work and is in regular communication on this issue with both the DMPC and the Night Czar.
