The City of Cockburn is committed to creating a vibrant, healthy, safe, inclusive and connected community. We are renewing our strategy for community safety and crime prevention and need your input.

Security and public safety is a top priority for the Cockburn community and is guided by the current Community Safety and CCTV Strategy. This Strategy has reached its end of life, with each of the committed actions and initiatives now delivered. It is time to develop a new Community Safety and Crime Prevention Strategy for the future.

The City has engaged Edith Cowan University (ECU) to assist in researching the perceptions of our community. The information you provide, combined with local data and research, will help to shape our new Community Safety and Crime Prevention Strategy.

    Thank you for sharing your views on safety in Cockburn!

    In late 2020 we invited residents, volunteers and businesses to share their views on safety and crime prevention in Cockburn. We heard from 909 people of all ages, from all over the City.

    Participants took part in focus groups, interviews and an online survey. The feedback you provided is being reviewed and will be used alongside data, research and key stakeholder recommendations, to shape our new Community Safety Crime Prevention Strategy.

    Key feedback themes included:

    • a desire for greater police presence in the community
    • targeted and proactive CoSafe patrols
    • greater communication and accountability
    • CCTV and more facilities and amenities in outer suburbs.

    Please view our infographic feedback summary for more information.

    What will happen next?

    We are now preparing a new Community Safety Crime Prevention Strategy. A draft will be created and shared with our community for further feedback. In the meantime, visit the City of Cockburn website to learn more about our current community safety and crime prevention initiatives in Cockburn.
