Community safety and crime prevention

We work with organisations to make Darebin a safer place for everyone. This includes addressing family violence, gender equality and public safety.

We work to make the City of Darebin a safer place for everyone by working closely with community groups, local police and government agencies to coordinate responses to community safety concerns.

Council works within an equity and public health framework in its approach to community safety. This is informed by evidence and best practice in Crime Prevention research and addresses the built, social, economic and cultural factors that influence safety and crime.

We consider community safety through an equity lens, by considering the impacts of people, experiences and places. Find out more in the Health and Wellbeing Plan.
