Community safety

The City of Canada Bay is committed to working in partnership with residents, police, community organisations, the business community, and state and federal governments to ensure the City of Canada Bay is a safe and welcoming place to live, work and visit.

Council’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan 2014-2018 was adopted by Council in June 2014. The City of Canada Bay will assume a lead role in working with neighbouring councils, NSW Police, local businesses, residents and community groups to prevent and reduce crime.  

The focus of the Plan will be to:

  1. Reduce the incidence of identity fraud;
  2. Reduce incidence of theft from retail stores;
  3. Actively pursue Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED);
  4. Continue to contribute to and support the Liquor Licensing Accord;
  5. Further reduce incidence of theft from motor vehicle;
  6. Further reduce the level of visible graffiti across the City of Canada Bay; and
  7. Combat community fears around crime through effective communication.  

Through this collaborative approach, the City of Canada Bay seeks to deliver a safe and secure LGA into the future. Residents can read the entire Plan below.
