Statement from the Mayor in response to violence against young people

I have been deeply concerned by reports of violence against young people in Melbourne’s south-east this week, including alleged incidents in Glen Eira.

My thoughts are with the young people who were attacked, and their family and friends. I thank Victoria Police for their response and for keeping our community informed.

Glen Eira is an incredible and resilient community. We have always been a place where our residents have told us they feel safe.

While Council does not play a role in policing, we are committed to working with other levels of government to improve community safety.
