Community Safety Month

Community Safety Month is held every October and reminds us that we all have a role to play in keeping our community safe.

Initiated in 1996 by the Victorian Safe Communities Network, Community Safety Month encourages people to look at ways in which they can improve safety in their homes, work, schools and communities.

Council is committed to working with our community and agency partners to continue to create safe neighbourhoods.
