    The community safety / ranger team paid a visit to Hilton Primary School on 3 April to discuss what the community safety team do, what equipment they use, all about responsible pet ownership, marking items for identification and bike safety and security. There were lots of great questions for the team and some input directly from students into the new community safety plan.

  • Forum Outcomes Uploaded

    8 months ago

    The Freo Today forum was an opportunity to bring together the community, service organisations, government, businesses and those with an interest to share the services already operating and identify future priorities together. The forum had a focus on the city centre community. The outcomes of the forum are now online.

    The overarching key challenge identified by attendees (both in groups and individual) was perception, communication and access to information – the need to address incorrect perceptions around crime and safety, promote positive stories and communicate information clearly.

    Several other challenges were identified and can be found in the report. A range of items have already been actioned or are in progress. They focus around:

    • communication
    • youth
    • planning, built environment & place management
    • anti-social behaviour and petty theft
    • mental health.

    The forum was attended by 42 people with individual feedback captured on the night positive.

    Following engagement with Fremantle suburbs in February and March 2019 (both online and in person) the City of Fremantle will be developing a Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan 2019 – 2023.

  • New CCTV Strategy

    10 months ago
    Cctv

    Fremantle’s network of security cameras is set to expand with the installation of an additional 25 fixed CCTV cameras throughout the city centre. The City of Fremantle CCTV Strategy 2019-2023 was prepared in consultation with WA Police.

    The new cameras will be funded through a $928,000 federal government Safer Communities grant and work is expected to commence in February 2019. Read the CCTV Strategy

    CCTV is an effective tool to monitor behaviour, incidents and property owned and managed by the City of Fremantle. The system will provide an effective tool to record, review and analyse safety and security events and incidents, in order to provide an effective response to Community Safety.

    The CCTV network is one of many community safety initiatives by the City of Fremantle. Last year the City expanded the Community Safety Team’s operating hours and also introduced bike patrols to allow the team to cover a greater area and improve response times.
