Community Safety is about creating a sense of community and security. This is achieved via community involvement in the development and delivery of targeted initiatives that improve the quality of life and safety of residents and workers in the local government area. The overarching aim is to reduce fear as well as incidence of crime and violence.
Crime Prevention is the responsibility of all levels of government, law enforcement, private enterprise and the community more broadly, to actively develop and implement strategies, programs and projects to prevent and/or reduce incidence of crime.
Canterbury-Bankstown Council has a long-standing commitment to reducing crime and as a result, increasing community safety for our residents. We want everyone to feel safe in the area within which thy live, work, visit or study.
As part of our commitment to improve and maintain safety for our residents, we have the following Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan:
Canterbury-Bankstown Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan
The plan guides the community safety and crime prevention direction of Council. It does so via crime priorities constructed through the analysis of crime statistics, consultation with the community safety reference group, key stakeholders, and the community. The plan steers the direction of approach, method of engagement and initiatives targeting crime priorities in Canterbury-Bankstown.
We have two main Community Safety goals:
To achieve our community safety goals, we focus on initiatives that address the needs of the Canterbury-Bankstown community. Our varied community safety and crime prevention initiatives can be accessed on our
