Let's make our community safer

Everyone should feel safe in their home, on their street, and out and about in their community. We all have a role to play in keeping our community safe, and we're dedicated to doing our part.

That's why we invest heavily in community safety initiatives, like our network of over 500 CCTV cameras and Belmont Community Watch security service. It's also why we're reviewing our Community Safety Strategy.

Your community safety priorities

We want to understand your community safety priorities.

We've organised our community safety initiatives into four areas: Deliver, Partner, Advocate, and Empower.

Each area covers a different way we handle community safety issues, and we'd like to hear how you would prioritise the initiatives in each area.

  • Deliver

    We provide a wide range of community safety services to enhance your feeling of personal safety.

  • Partner

    Many aspects of community safety and crime prevention are best dealt with in partnership with other organisations, such as WA Police, Belmont City College and Neighbourhood Watch.

  • Advocate

    Where we aren't able to deliver services, we can advocate for policies and reforms that improve community safety. Advocacy can include, but isn't limited to, lobbying governments and being involved in community-driven campaigns and causes.

  • Empower

    Community safety and crime prevention is everyone's responsibility. These services are our way of empowering you to play your part.

Tell us what you think

On the following pages, you'll get to tell us what your priorities are for the areas listed above, share your ideas, and tell us about how safe you feel in the City of Belmont.

The whole process is anonymous and usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete, but you can take as long as you need.
