Call to Community for Views on Crime
The City of Melville is set to undertake community consultation on perceptions of safety and crime prevention in the City.
SAVANT Surveys and Strategies will administer the telephone survey in April and May to a random representative sample of City of Melville residents to find out their views on community safety and crime prevention.
Residents who receive phone calls will be asked a number of questions including whether any places in the City cause them to feel unsafe, as well as potential areas for improvement.
Coordinator Community Safety and Crime Prevention Tanya van Sittert said the consultation would help ascertain perceptions of safety and crime within the community to assist in the development of future plans. “The consultation will provide an opportunity for residents to voice any safety or crime concerns and will provide the City with a valuable insight into the wider community’s perceptions,” she said. “Information provided during the consultation will be strictly confidential so residents can feel free to say what’s on their minds.”
Mayor Russell Aubrey said the consultation would enable the City to make plans for the future. “The community consultation will provide the City with valuable information to assist in the ongoing development of the 2008-2012 Community Safety Crime Prevention Plan,” he said. “The insights gained will help to ensure the City of Melville will remain a safe and enjoyable community to live in.”
