Community safety

Safe and healthy communities

Creating a safer community is a key priority for Council. In Council’s Community Strategic Plan 2017-2027, the community emphasised community safety and crime prevention as a high priority, requiring an active response from Council.

Council is working towards this community priority through strengthening collaboration between government departments, businesses and the community to achieve reduction in crime activity and increase the community’s sense that Lake Macquarie is a safe place to live, work and play.

Council’s Crime Prevention Strategy 2015-2018 identifies key areas of crime activity currently being targeted in partnership with NSW Police and other key stakeholders to achieve the goal of a safer community. Through these partnerships Council is helping to:
