    Hi, there is an empty block next to the shops on Eureka Rd Wilson is left to decay and without enough lightings at night. I have heard people strolling late at night and sometimes shouting. Is there anything the council can do? E.g. install more street lights, install CCTV, and renovate the block into a park (if possible).

    Nic asked 9 months ago

    Thank you for your question.

    The site is privately owned, and upon inspection it appears to be sufficiently fenced, provides adequate passive surveillance, and is surrounded by fully functional lighting.

    Whilst we can’t compel the owner to install lighting or develop the site as a park, our Ranger and Community Safety Service will increase patrols in the area, and look at deploying a mobile CCTV trailer in an effort to detect and deter antisocial behaviour.

    To discuss this further, please email safecommunities@canning.wa.gov.au, or contact the Ranger and Community Safety Service on 1300 422 664.

    After attending the recent safe communities session in Willetton I could see no outcomes. All it did was identify there were real crime concerns amongst the residents. People want outcomes and actions. Things people can do now to protect themselves and their property.

    Keith2 asked 10 months ago

    Thank for your feedback, we are disappointed you felt there were no outcomes. To date the City has received very positive feedback from those who attended.  

    The aim of the Sessions was to connect the community with relevant City staff and local Police, to raise and discuss issues that concerned them. Any specific items raised, that were not answered during the session, have since been followed up with the individuals directly.

    A copy of the presentation and Ward specific information handouts can be found at canning.wa.gov.au/communitysafetysessions

    Good Morning, Could the council not place some portable cameras in the areas that seem to get tagged a lot. I live in Willetton and notice a lot of tagging around the basketball stadium and in the local parks.? Are there any night patrols around Willetton.? Thanks.

    james innes. asked 10 months ago

    Thank you for your enquiry. 

    The City has fixed CCTV in this location and regularly deploys additional mobile CCTV units in an attempt to detect and deter antisocial behaviour.  Our Community Safety Service are available 24 hours a day and have been conducting additional after hours patrols of this location for some time.

    If you need to report a specific matter to our Community Safety Service, please call 1300 422 664.

    With the increase in crime in our neighbourhood, what happened to Council patrols at night?? Some deterrence is better than nothing!

    Juliana asked 10 months ago

    Thank you for your comment. 

    Please report all crime directly to the Police on 131 444, or 000 if it’s an emergency. In relation to patrols conducted by the City’s Community Safety Service, they continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The team are contactable on 1300 422 664. More information can be found HERE

    Without knowing which suburb you are in, it’s difficult to provide specific advice relating to patrols in your suburb.  If you would like to provide further details or discuss further, please contact the Community Safety Service on 1300 422 664.

    Is there a current or future CCTV partnership project? I live on a busy street in the City, that has some problems with crime but is also a high foot traffic area feeding in to and out of many other streets in the suburb. My location would be considered strategic in the detection and investigation of community safety and crime. I would be willing to have my property assessed for suitability and meet any reasonable terms and conditions, as well as pay the initial cost of the installed system, knowing there would be some rebate from the City.

    Janie Brown asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your comment. 

    In an effort to encourage residents to improve the level of security in and around their property, the City provides a Security Incentive Scheme, that can subsidise the cost of CCTV on private residences. Whilst the current funding round is not open yet, it is likely to be announced in the coming months. More information can be found here. 

    The State Government runs a similar Security Incentive Scheme for Seniors, more details are available at seniorscard.wa.gov.au/ssterms2021/

    Will there be women self defence classes this year? My daughter and I really enjoyed it last year and found it very helpful.

    Jess.M asked over 1 year ago

    Thank you for your comment. 

    It is great to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed the Women's Self Defence Workshops last year. As the classes proved to be very popular, we will be running 3 sessions this October Community Safety Month. 

    Once our calendar is complete and all events are confirmed, the events will be widely promoted on the City's social media platforms, as well as through this Your Say page.

    What is happening with the new fencing around Queensville Park in Lynwood? Will the posts be fitted with a chain to restrict the too-common use of the park as an escape route for a recent spate of trail bikes cutting through Lynwood?

    Lynwood Resident asked almost 2 years ago

    Thank you for your comment. The existing post and rail fencing around Queensville Park is being replaced with the City’s standard recycled plastic bollards. These bollards are not suitable to be fitted with chains.

    The City’s Ranger and Community Safety Services team have been notified and will increase patrols for off road vehicles in this area.

    In future, you can notify the RCSS by calling 1300 422 664 at the time of the incident.
