Pan Pacific Safe Community Accreditation
The Safe Communities Framework is an internationally recognised, evidence-based model for addressing community safety issues at the local level. City of Melville is the first community in WA to align to this framework and on 19 February 2017 was the first community in WA to achieve accreditation as a Pan Pacific Safe Community.
The accreditation demonstrates we have acquired the capacity to take strategic and effective actions to prevent injury and to promote a culture of safety for everyone who lives in our community. Becoming a Safe Community also means we are committed to a network of communities around the world which, like us, have made a commitment to the safety and well-being of every one of their citizens.
The City of Melville is now also a member of the Pan Pacific Safe Communities Network. This network of the International Safe Communities movement includes in excess of 121 Safe Communities in Canada, United States, Australia and New Zealand.
