Community Safety Strategy
Everyone wants to be safe and feel safe. The City of Salisbury recognises the importance of safety, and people’s confidence in their safety, in the growth and development of our rich and diverse community. We want people to feel safe while living, working, studying and playing in Salisbury, so they can participate and enjoy in everything our city offers.
Safety affects every member of our community. Programs to improve safety in our city and across South Australia rely on strong partnerships between Council, SAPOL, local business, government and non-government services, community organisations and individuals.
The City of Salisbury Community Safety Strategy (the Strategy) provides a platform for how the City of Salisbury works with the community and all stakeholders to address the complex crime and safety issues affecting our community. These partnerships are crucial for Council to share information, build awareness and maximise participation in the Strategy’s programs.
The Strategy also helps Council make informed decisions about our priorities and provides evidence for our approaches to the state and Australian governments for grants and other funding.
This Strategy builds on many years of work in Salisbury to create and maintain safe environments for our community. In developing it we have spoken to stakeholders locally and around Australia, and examined how the best safety programs address safety problems and community concerns, to develop a plan that is suited to our city, our people and our needs.
