Community Safety and Crime Prevention

The Shire of Murray is committed to making the community a safer place to live, work and recreate.   The Shire formed a Community Safety and Crime Prevention Strategic Partnership with the Pinjarra Police, Dwellingup Police, Streetnet, SDERA and local Progress Associations who work towards implementing the 2016 – 2021 Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan, addressing key community safety and crime prevention concerns identified by the community.
The purpose of the partnership is to:

  • Foster a coordinated and collaborative response to incidents of anti-social and criminal behaviour
  • Improve public perceptions of the shire as a safe place to live, work and visit through regular positive communication to the Community
  • Review and develop a Strategic Community and Crime Prevention Plan (the Plan)
  • Identify funding opportunities, to undertake crime prevention and community safety initiatives aligned with objectives outlined in the Plan
  • Promote awareness in the local community of community safety initiatives, program and services in the Shire of Murray.
