​​​​​​​If you have a concern about safety or crime in our community you can report your concerns to us through our online form or by calling our Customer Service Centre ​on 9707 9000. ​

We take all reports seriously and aim to help you as best we can. Our Community Safety Officer will conduct an inspection with representatives from the Local Area Command at the location that you feel may be unsafe.

The purpose of the inspection is to assess the site and recommend ways to improve the built environment to prevent crime from taking place. This is called Crime Prevention through Environmental Design.

Recommendations may include trimming trees so that the streets are better lit at night, installing signage to prevent loitering or illegal parking, installing additional lighting or arranging for additional Police patrols at the location.

Remember, in an emergency or if you or anyone you know is in immediate danger, always go straight to the emergency services by dialling 000.
