Safer Melville Plan Priority Review

Safer Melville Plan Priority Review

Closed

Thank you for helping us review the priorities in the 2017-2021 Safer Melville Plan to ensure we are directing our resources and actions to where they are most needed.

Last Updated: 23 March 2020

About the Engagement

We have a Safer Melville Plan in place which identifies injury and community safety priorities for our community. These priorities inform the actions we take to improve safety and security, and reduce injury within the community. 

As the Safer Melville Plan was developed in 2016, we are doing a minor review of the priorities to ensure we are directing our resources and actions to where they are most needed. This involves analysing the most recent data (e.g. crime statistics) and clarifying information with our community to get the full picture.

We have now completed our initial data review and have heard from the community on the topics of community safety and crime; accidental falls; intentional self-harm and suicide; and transport crashes. 

Community Involvement

We asked the community to contribute their thoughts and feedback using the online surveys made available on this page from Friday, 14 February to Friday 28 February 2020. They were able to answer questions from a number of topics which renovated with them. The topics were:

  • Community Safety and Crime
  • Accidental Falls
  • Intentional Self-harm and Suicide
  • Transport Crashes

The community were also invited to visit two pop-up engagement stalls to have a chat with someone from the Safer Melville team.
