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.
