Community Safety Working Group
Published on 05 October 2021
In a bid to boost public safety and to assist key agencies to collaborate, the Shire has taken the initiative to create a Community Safety Working Group (CSWG).
The Shire’s Community Safety Plan (2021 – 2025) identifies actions the Shire will implement in partnership with agencies and the community to reduce the risk of crime and anti-social behaviour and improve community perceptions of safety.
The Plan contains several key priority themes, including a ‘Civic Leadership’ theme, with the creation of the CSWG to provide updates and seek feedback on community safety initiatives and identify opportunities and trends in the community.
The Shire Council adopted the members of the new CSWG at last week’s Council meeting, with representatives from 13 organisations and Indigenous communities endorsed.
Five members of the public were also endorsed to be included in the group to be conduits to the general community and provide invaluable input.
The first meeting of the group will take place in the near future, with the Shire to provide regular updates there-after.
