Shire of Harvey – Community Safety and Crime prevention workshop

June 3, 2021

On Thursday, 13 May 2021, over 50 Key stakeholders including the Department of Justice, Police, Ambulance, Youth workers, local schools, WA Community Health Service, Headspace and Injury Matters as well as interested community members attended the Community Safety and Crime Prevention workshop hosted by the Shire of Harvey.

The workshop involved small group discussions rotating every 10 minutes.  Each small group discussed the themes Community Safety, Injury Prevention, Crime Prevention, Road Safety, Families and young people, Emergency Management. For each theme, the small group was asked to outline what they thought the issues and trends were, what their organization could contribute and what they believed the Shire of Harvey could be doing to help address the issues.

All participants were able to comment on five different themes throughout the morning.  The results were recorded and will be collated by Shire of Harvey to inform the development of their Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan.
