Community safety

We are committed to providing a safe community for everyone who lives, works and visits Stonnington. 

This includes providing:

  • safe streets and neighbourhoods,
  • safe behaviour and social support,
  • safe transport, access and movement, and
  • community strengthening and partnership.

We have a number of strategies and activities to provide information, address concerns, prevent hazards and help reduce crime.

The 16 Days initiative from 25 November to 10 December 2020, coincides with the United Nation’s 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence.
