Security patrols


The City of Swan has suspended the 24-hour community patrols within Ellenbrook and The Vines for a period of 12 months.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting on March 14, 2018 Council voted to cease the security patrol service from June 30, 2018, for a trial period of one year, and in 2019 seek feedback from the community on whether they would like the service to return.

The City will continue to work with the WA Police and local community groups over the 12 months. The community will then have another chance to share their preference for the service after this period. A survey will be undertaken between July and September 2019.
