Working towards a safer Cardinia

  • Everyone deserves to feel safe at home, school, work or in a public place, so they can participate fully in community life.
  • Building a safe community requires a whole-of-community response. 
  • Community safety is a leading priority for Council under our Liveability Plan. We're committed to working in partnership with community, agencies, and volunteer organisations on this issue.

We understand that improving safety across the shire is a priority for our residents. We are committed to playing an important role in promoting community safety and supporting crime prevention activities at the local level.

Through engagement with our community and partners we have developed the Community Safety Framework. This framework is intended to provide a comprehensive evidence-based framework for the way Council approaches community safety within the municipality to maximise impact.

The Safer Communities Partnership Committee is a collective of professionals across a wide range of industries that come together to promote their work in community safety and advise Council on local safety issues. 

The Committee meets bimonthly and oversees the Safety Action Agenda.
