The City of Gosnells, through its Safe City Initiative, hosted a Personal Safety Awareness Workshop for residents at Amaroo Village last week.

More than 70 residents attended the workshop which provided information and practical tips on personal safety, crime prevention and community safety.

City of Gosnells Mayor Terresa Lynes said it was important residents had the knowledge to help them feel safe in the community.

“The City is committed to community safety and the feedback we’ve received from participants has been very positive,” she said.

“By conducting these workshops in conjunction with local Police, the City is encouraging residents to come together, get to know each other and in turn look after one another.”

The workshop included presentations from the City of Gosnells, Gosnells and Armadale Police and Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch.

Each participant received a Personal Safety bag with information on community safety, a personal alarm and a crime prevention kit.
