Community Safety & Crime Prevention Plan 2010 – 2013

A four year Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan was endorsed by council on the 17 th May 2010. This is a continuation of the partnership between the Office of Crime Prevention, the Shire of Peppermint Grove, WA Police and various other State Government agencies and the local community. The Plan is the result of a review of the 2006-2008 Plan, outcomes from a youth forum held in November 2009 and issues that were identified at a community workshop held in December 2009.

The results from the review process were then prioritised into four key strategy areas. These four strategies have been developed to address community concerns and reflect statistical crime trends. For the 2010-2013 Community Safety & Crime Prevention Plan programs that focus on community empowerment through provision of information/education, reduction in burglary, graffiti/vandalism, alcohol & drug use, road safety and youth engagement will be given priority. Grant funding of $20,000 received in July 2010 was utilised for the above program.

Thanks must be given to the Peppermint Grove Neighbourhood Watch and Community Safety Committee for their hard work and commitment in helping draft this new community safety plan for the benefit of all who live and work in Peppermint Grove. Shire CSCP Plan
