In June 2023, staff from the City's Community Safety Team asked the community what your community safety priorities are.

Since then, we have been considering this feedback and developing a Draft Community Safety Plan.

We are now asking for your feedback on whether we have the plan right before we ask Council to endorse it.

Have your say

The Community Safety Ranger team operates from 7 am until 7 pm, seven days a week and can be contacted via 9267 9267.

In addition to conducting proactive patrols of the city, the team also responds to matters such as dogs barking, wandering or dog attacks, cats on private property, nuisances or hazards caused by livestock, investigating abandoned vehicles, residential parking matters, and reducing illegal dumping throughout the city.
