Community safety

Our Community Safety Plan helps us identify the issues that matter most in Glen Eira. It brings together our work with key partners in developing ways to improve and maintain safety.

Community Safety Plan

In our Glen Eira Council and Community Plan 2017–2021, 78 per cent of community participants identified safety and security as a high priority for future actions.

Following these findings, we made a commitment to:

  • work with Victoria Police and key stakeholders to promote and enhance safety in Glen Eira
  • establish a Glen Eira Community Safety Committee with representation from Victoria Police and key stakeholders
  • develop a Community Safety Plan in collaboration with the community.

The Community Safety Plan 2018–2022 (PDF) sets a clear vision for a safe and secure Glen Eira. It complements your passion for your neighbourhood, and your involvement in not-for-profits, sports clubs and local businesses. 

The plan includes a four-year strategic framework, information from the Community Safety Snapshot 2020 (PDF), Community Safety Snapshot 2021 (PDF), and support from the biennial Glen Eira Community Safety Plan — Action Plan 2020–2022 (PDF).

The Community Safety Plan Action Plan 2020–2022 (PDF) contained 21 actions to be implemented over two years of which 20 (95%) were completed. Find out more about our Key Achievements from the Community Safety Action Plan 2020–2021 (PDF).
