Community Safety Service (CSS)

Holiday Watch Patrols

The City’s Community Safety Service (CSS) offers holiday watch patrols to residents at no extra cost. Register to have your property patrolled while you’re away.

Online Safety

With the rise and increased use of online technologies comes the need to take greater care of our safety online. Cyberbullying, scammers and security breaches are all forms of online crimes.

Car Safety

Theft from cars may only take a few seconds - a broken window, a quick grab, and the thieves have gone.

Home Safety

You can dramatically reduce the chances of your home being burgled with some common sense and by applying Designing Out Crime Principles (DOC) to your property.

Party Safety

Be a great host, keep your guests safe and don’t disturb the neighbours.

Graffiti Management

We have a number of actions in place to address graffiti vandalism in our City, but crime prevention is everyone’s business.

Neighbourhood Watch

A good neighbour cares about their neighbours and community. A great neighbour gets to know, looks out for and helps neighbours and their community.
