Community Safety is everybody's responsibility. We need your help to make Blacktown a safer place.
Blacktown Community Safety Coordinating Committee
We have established a group (the Blacktown Community Safety Coordinating Committee) to oversee this work. The group consists of local residents and representatives from local community and government organisations. The Committee is currently involved in a range of activities including:
Blacktown City Crime Prevention Plan 2014-2017
Community safety is everyone's business. The Blacktown City Crime Prevention Plan 2014- 2017 aims to prevent or reduce crime throughout our City through a range of community-based strategies such as: awareness raising, advocacy, policy development, service development and community development.
The plan was developed by Council in partnership with our three Police Local Area Commands and with the active involvement of many local organisations and Government agencies.
The plan is an important part of Council's commitment to becoming a safer community.

Report It Don't Ignore It Reporting Pad
"Report It, Don't Ignore It" reporting pads are available free to local residents and are used to record incidents of anti-social behaviour or criminal behaviour. Residents are encouraged to report these incidents to the Police and keep details on the pad for their own records. The pad also includes helpful phone numbers such as local Police stations and local fire stations.

Safety switches save lives
Switch Thinking aims to increase public awareness of the importance of safety switches. Many Australian homes do not have safety switches fitted, and very few homes have them on all circuits. To be completely protected it is recommended safety switches be fitted on ALL circuits.
