What we do
Safe City is a multi-faceted program to address the safety and security issues of people who live, study, work in and visit the local area. It sees the City of Sydney working together with police, residents and community groups to address identified safety concerns.
The focus is on preventing crime and helping to make Sydney a safer place. Some of the work so far includes:
- developing agreements between police and licensed venues to reduce underage drinking and anti-social behaviour
- developing a syringe management strategy to improve drug safety
- increasing street safety cameras in known crime hotspots
- working with communites in City villages to resolve specific crime and safety concerns
- releasing educational campaigns to promote safety and enoucourage the reporting of crime.
Safe City's crime prevention campaigns have considerably reduced theft in the local area. The campaigns provide simple reminders to visitors, workers and residents in the local area to take precautions so their personal property is protected from opportunistic crime. The campaigns have addressed offences such as theft from individuals and motor vehicles.
You can order campaign materials using the resource order form at the end of this page. Campaign materials that are available include:
- A4 posters
- A3 posters
- drink coasters
