Report

The following advice is provided to the Crime Prevention Working Group (CPWG) on the items recorded in the minutes for action from the meeting held 19 April 2021.

 

Community Safety Perception Survey

As previously reported to the working group consultation with key stakeholders and community is being conducted during June to August 2021 to gather further information and input into the development of strategies and actions for the draft Community Safety Action Plan. Three 90-minute forums targeting 18+ years community members were delivered on Tuesday 15 June and Friday 18 June at the TAFE Wagga campus, at Council and The Personnel Group offices in Tolland. Further one on one and group community meetings will occur during July and August targeting a diverse range of community members living across the Local Government Area.

 

Investigate the Attorney General’s funding program for the Community Safety Action Plan 2025

The NSW Department of Communities and Justice (DCJ) provided written advice on 10 June 2021 to Council that the application for funding to employ a Crime Prevention Project Officer has been unsuccessful. Staff will continue to apply for any funding opportunities available to support the development of the Wagga Wagga Community Safety Action Plan 2025 which will replace the Wagga Wagga Crime Prevention Plan 2021.
