Around 200 Gosnells and Southern River residents gathered at Jean Garvey Park in Gosnells last Thursday 19 November, to improve safety and raise awareness about crime prevention.

The first of four family-friendly Your Neighbourhood events shared information about personal safety, home security and vehicle security, and encouraged residents to get to know their neighbours and report crime to the WA Police Force.

City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode says everyone has a right to feel safe in their homes, and the Your Neighbourhood events are designed to empower and support residents.

“Crime prevention is everyone’s business. Working together, getting to know our neighbours, having discussions about safety and crime prevention and sharing knowledge are all important parts of keeping ourselves, our families and our community safe.”

Your Neighbourhood was hosted by the City of Gosnells in partnership with the Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch, WA Police Force, Rotary Club of Gosnells and the Gosnells Volunteer Bushfire Brigade.

Participants enjoyed a free sausage sizzle, family activities and were able to meet and talk with City staff and Police Officers.

Three more Your Neighbourhood events will take place in the first half of 2021, and residents are encouraged to attend one local to them. The events will be promoted via a letter drop and on the City’s social media.
