At the Ordinary Council Meeting on March 14, 2018 the Council voted to cease the security patrol service in Ellenbrook and The Vines for a trial period of one year from June 30, 2018 and in 2019 seek feedback from the community on whether they would like the service to return.
The Ellenbrook community will once again be given an opportunity to share their views about a security patrol service when they are surveyed between July and September 2019. The City will continue to work with the WA Police and local community groups while there is no security patrol service in operation.
Following the Ordinary Council Meeting on March 14, 2018, a resident petition was presented. This was followed up by a further community survey of The Vines property and business owners, which showed strong support for continuing the security patrol service. In December 2018, the Council resolved to proceed with a security patrol in The Vines for the near future. The service will operate 19 hours per day.
