Community Safety & Health
Burton Joyce ia a relatively safe place to live for the majority of  people and there are few reported crimes. Nevertheless, many  residents expressed concern at the low level of police presence  and feel that if they did report a crime, the police would  consider the incident too trivial and take no action.  Almost three quarters of respondents felt that a Neighbourhood  Watch scheme would be of benefit to the village, and in 2012  such a scheme was re-established. 63% of respondents felt “very satisfied” and 35% “satisfied”  with health services in the village. Despite this encouraging  feedback, there were numerous comments relating to the  difficulty of arranging appointments for those who were  working.
