Wagga Wagga City Council staff are encouraging the community to share their thoughts about safety and crime in the final week of the 2021 Community Safety Perception Survey.

Council recently issued the anonymous 10 minute survey to gain a better understanding of community perceptions of safety and crime in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area.

SEEKING YOUR FEEDBACK: Youth Development Officer Vanessa Jennings discusses the 2021 Community Safety Perception Survey with Angela Williams and Marcia Thompson at the Kooringal Community Hub.

Social Planner Lisa Saffery said the response to the survey had been excellent, and she was hoping more residents would take the opportunity to share their thoughts before the survey closes on 12 March.

“Everyone deserves to feel safe in their home and their neighbourhood,” Ms Saffery said.

“Take a moment to share your thoughts and concerns with us – we want to know where you feel safe, where you feel unsafe, and why.

“Your feedback will help Council identify priorities for the updated Community Safety Action Plan 2025.

“We’ll be working in partnership with police and community partners to map out practical improvements that Council, other agencies and stakeholders can make to help increase community safety and prevent crime, where possible.”

The updated Community Safety Action Plan 2025 will be available for public feedback later in 2021.
