Have your say about community safety

Wagga Wagga City Council is currently updating the Crime Prevention Plan 2021 to develop the Community Safety Action Plan 2025.
The Community Safety Action Plan 2025 will provide a framework for Council, in partnership with police and community partners, to work towards increasing community safety and preventing crime.
Council has recently released a survey seeking to understand community perceptions of safety and crime in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area.
Social Planner Lisa Saffery said results from the anonymous 10 minute survey will help identify priorities for inclusion in the updated Community Safety Action Plan 2025.
“We want to know how safe you feel in your home, neighbourhood, suburb or rural village across the entire Wagga Wagga Local Government Area,” Ms Saffery said.
“Your feedback will help us create priorities for inclusion in the updated Community Safety Action Plan 2025 to work towards improving safety and preventing crime where possible in our community.”
Like its predecessor the Crime Prevention Plan 2021, the Community Safety Action Plan 2025 will map out practical improvements that Council, other agencies and stakeholders can make to improve community safety.
“We are encouraging everyone in the community to complete this survey to let us know their concerns and suggestions,” Ms Saffery said.
Community members are encouraged to visit connect.wagga.nsw.gov.au/safety and complete the survey. The survey is open until 5pm, 12 March 2021.
The draft Community Safety Action Plan 2025 will be available for public feedback at a later date in 2021.
