Community Safety & Crime Prevention Action Plan 2013-2015

Brewarrina Shire Council (BSC) has made an increased commitment to its community service obligations through the identification of its community service’s needs, as expressed in the Community Strategic Plan.

This Community Safety & Crime Prevention Action Plan shows a further commitment, by Council, to assist in developing a safer and more liveable community environment for residents in the Shire.

The Community Safety & Crime Prevention Action Plan is an initiative of Brewarrina Shire Council’s Community Development Team.

The focus of the plan is the development of a comprehensive and strategic Crime Prevention Strategic Plan which has broad stakeholder input and represents an integrated and long term approach to community safety and crime prevention in Brewarrina Shire.

This Action Plan represents a commitment to preliminary work in the area of community safety and crime prevention to raise the profile of this area of work, with a view to taking on a broader, more comprehensive approach in the Strategic Plan

This Action Plan seeks to assist BSC, NSW Police and the local community to determine the present and future needs of the Brewarrina community in this area, in order to develop a greater consciousness of community safety and a decrease in the crime rate in our communities.
