Survey to capture City views on safety

​​The City of Canterbury Bankstown is looking to continue to work with local Police on successful programs aimed at further reducing crime.

Recently, the Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) released figures which showed there has been a significant decrease in the number of incidents in the majority of crime categories in Canterbury-Bankstown, over the past five years.

Mayor Asfour said the biggest drop in crime came in the number of property break and enters occurring – down a massive 52%.

“However, while it’s pleasing to see such results, it is not time to relax,” Mayor Asfour said.

“While Council and Police have done an incredible job working together to better educate the community and address safety concerns raised by residents, more needs to be done.

“That’s why we are inviting residents to have their say by filling out a survey on their perceptions of the City.

“This survey will help us understand what our residents think and feel about living in Canterbury-Bankstown, and guide Council in identifying key strategies moving forward.”

Residents will have until 1 December to complete the survey, which can be found at It’s anticipated, the survey will be conducted every three years, to gauge the changes in community’s perceptions.

“As a result of previous feedback, Council introduced Local Safety Forums, which are held every three months in different parts of the City. These forums enable residents to obtain accurate data for the area from Police and raise any concerns they have regarding safety matters,” Mayor Asfour said.

The next Local Safety Forum will be held later this year in the Canterbury Ward, for residents living in the suburbs of Belfield, Croydon Park, Ashbury, Canterbury, Hurlstone Park, Campsie, Clemton Park and Earlwood.

For more information on Local Safety Forums, visit or call Council’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Officer on 9707 9471.
