Community Safety Strategy (76kb)

Purpose

The Community Safety Strategy provides context to Council’s commitment to a Safe Community.  The document identifies the key safety areas in which Council will work and the way in which the organisation will engage in strengthening capacity and resilience for a Safe Community.

Scope

Community Safety influences all aspects of daily life including where a person will live, socialise, learn, work and interact within Casey.  It provides a foundation for our long term choices and decision-making processes at the individual, family, community and Government levels. Safety, along with shelter and food, is considered the basic pre-condition for health and wellbeing.  In this way, the importance of community safety means that this Strategy applies to and impacts all of those living, visiting or working in the City of Casey.
