Security patrols


Community security patrols have been reinstated in The Vines after community feedback. The City is currently out to survey for the Ellenbrook area (including Morgan Fields, Henley Brook) to see if the community would like the service reinstated.

The Vines

A security patrol service for The Vines recommenced on July 1, 2019 after community feedback for the service to return. 

After carefully considering the options and community feedback Council decided to reinstate the service in The Vines for three years and residents will be surveyed again in two years to confirm if the service continues beyond 2022.

The service operates from 7am until 2am, (19 hours per day) 7 days a week. The contact number for the security patrol is 08 9278 9696.

The service for Ellenbrook and Morgan Fields, Henley Brook remains on pause until a decision is made in March 2020.

In 2019, the City surveyed property owners within the identified patrol area to confirm if they would like the service to return or stop completely. 

On Wednesday, January 22, the City of Swan Council decided to defer their decision about the reinstatement of security patrol services in Ellenbrook and Morgan Fields. The item will be reconsidered at the meeting of Wednesday, March 11.  During this time, Councillors wish to collect more data about antisocial behaviour and how this is reflected in reported crime rates. Councillors will also consult further with the community on the value of the patrol and look into the financial impact on ratepayers. You can access the full minutes on the City’s website from Thursday, February 6.
