Latest news


Our Community Safety & Crime Prevention Plan 2023-2027 outlines our commitment to improving and maintaining the safety of our residents. Our Plan outlines strategies, programs and initiatives to prevent and reduce crime, and promote a greater sense of safety for everyone.

Have your say on our draft plan to help create a safer CBCity, so we can make our community a safer and more welcoming place for everyone.

The plan

The plan is focussed on five safety and four crime priorities, which reflect issues identified in both the crime profile and issues identified by the community during the engagement process.

What we heard

To develop this plan, we engaged with the community through a variety of avenues including social planning workshops, local safety outreach sessions, focus groups with key local community networks and inter-agencies, and community surveys.

It was identified that special consideration should be provided for vulnerable community groups within Canterbury-Bankstown including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; Culturally linguistically diverse community, seniors, LGBTIQA+ community, people with a disability, and young people.

Some things you told us:

The top concerns identified were (in order):

  • Drugs and Alcohol
  • Domestic and Family Violence and Personal safety (equal second)
  • Scams and Fraud
  • Homelessness and Break and Enter (equal fourth); and
  • Assault and Motor Vehicle Theft (equal fifth)
