The Safe City Initiative is a comprehensive community based crime prevention program formed to address an identified need within the community. The initiative encompasses many aspects of crime prevention, security and safety strategies which are published in the Community Safety & Crime Prevention Plan 2018 – 2021.

The Safe City Initiative is a unique approach within Local Government as the City has taken an innovative approach to crime prevention by embracing a multi-faceted initiative that incorporates projects to increase awareness and reporting whilst addressing the fear of crime.

The Initiative also includes significant environmental and urban design strategies used to design out crime by applying advanced principles of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED). 

The Safer Seniors program focuses on community identified safety issues concerning seniors within the city and is targeted at residents who are eligible for, or hold a Western Australia Seniors Card.  To learn more follow the link in Quick Links.

This Initiative is a unique and holistic approach to crime prevention that embraces the ethos of community responsibility and involvement by involving the community at all levels. As it is also collaborative it shares the responsibilities for security and safety within the City between all sections of the community.
