Phone system

We are experiencing some issues with our phone system which means that we cannot make or receive calls. We are working to resolve these issues, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Notice your neighbourhood

Research shows that an area which is clean and well maintained sends the signal that the area is monitored and that criminal behaviour is not tolerated. Addressing concerns early reduces the chances of problems escalating and contributes to a community which feels safe and empowered.

There are a number of services available to rectify issues in the community but we can’t do this alone. If you notice something in your local area, from overhanging vegetation onto a footpath, abandoned vehicles, incidents of rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour, or an area where you don’t feel safe we encourage you to report your concerns.

Unsafe areas

StreetSafe is a service for anyone to anonymously report public places where you have felt or feel unsafe. This includes poor street lighting, abandoned buildings or vandalism as well as feeling unsafe due to being followed or verbally abused. Reports are routinely reviewed by the Police and Council to consider anything which can be done to reduce the impact and improve feelings of safety.
