Community Safety Month

Published on 22 September 2020

Community safety involves many things: from health and wellbeing, to knowing your neighbours and understanding that perceptions of crime can be varied.

Witnessed and perceived threats to community safety are the responsibility of government, police, business and residents. We are committed to collaborating wherever we can to ensure community safety.

Threats to safety can be be interpreted widely. Negative perceptions can be influenced by physical appearance, location, increased concern as a result of 24/7 access to news and media and increasing isolation within our community.

Here are resources to help you prevent theft from vehicles, homes and businesses.

Neighbour Day

Neighbour Day occurs in March every year. In 2020, Connection Cards were developed to build community support during COVID-19.

Crime prevention

The most common crime is theft from a car.
