Community safety


Pay a fixed penalty notice (FPN)

If you have been issued with a fixed penalty notice (FPN) you can use our online payments system to pay the fine.

This is for offences such as breach of a Public Spaces Protection Notice, Community Protection Notice, or Environmental Enforcement Notice.

This should not be used for payment for parking fines, which can be paid for on our parking fines page.

Who are we?

We are Trafford Council’s Community Safety Team which sits within the remit of the Safer Trafford Partnership

The Safer Trafford Integrated Partnership Team’s aims are as follows:

  • To reduce crime and the fear of crime by using a multi-agency action led partnership.
  • To create and sustain inclusive, vibrant communities where people feel safe.

How do we work?

In order to ensure the Community Safety Team achieves the above we work on a locality based model, which enables our team to base staff in the heart of communities throughout the Borough of Trafford. This approach ensures that we work with communities to develop ideas to tackle anti social behaviour, and place enforcement at locations that are responsive to residents needs.

What can we assist communities with?

The Community Safety Team covers a wide range of areas including:

  • Hate Crime
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Serious violence reduction
  • Organised crime and exploitation
  • Community safety issues
  • Prevent Duty
  • CCTV
  • Emergency planning and civil contingencies

How can we work with you?

We believe in working with communities to tackle social issues. By working in this manner we ensure we meet the needs of local people & embed skills in communities.
