Every home in Brixington is to be visited by Exmouth police in a bid to listen to the concerns of residents.
More than 5,000 homes will be visited in an attempt to pinpoint the problems that most affect the community.
Each home will also be visited by the Brixington Improvement Group (BIG), the district council and local partner agencies.
The police plan to tackle the challenge street by street.
Officers are also keen for people to get in touch if they have any pressing concerns or issues they would like addressed.
Brixington neighbourhood beat police has recently began the programme, last month holding a community action day in the Broadpark Road and Brimpenny Road areas.
Police community support officer Chris Ball said: "It's a sizeable challenge with over 5000 homes to visit, but if it helps to make Brixington a better community for us all to live, then we are keen to address and listen to people's concerns.
"We can only improve things with residents' help.
"We will be rolling this out on a street by street basis. If people have immediate concerns, we would ask them to contact us and their street will be prioritised."
The process has already begun with a Community Action Day that was held in the Broadpark Road and Brimpenny Road area at the end of May.
Contact Exmouth police on 08452 777 444 with any concerns.
