Community Safety Plan

We’re currently developing a Community Safety Plan for 2018-22 to improve how safe people are - and feel - here.

Thank you to everyone who provided input to and feedback about the draft plan. We expect this document to go to Council for adoption on 26 November 2018.

We have developed this plan through extensive engagement with local residents and businesses, and with the support of local police and the Penrith Community Safety Partnership. It is based on crime data analysis as well as consultation to understand community perceptions of safety and areas of concern.

Penrith is already a place with relatively low rates of crime, where people have told us they feel safe at home, at work or out and about. We want to make sure this only improves even as Penrith grows and changes, so we can all continue to enjoy the great lifestyle and opportunities on offer around the City.

Last year we asked the community to tell us where you feel safe and unsafe, what contributes to those feelings, and what would help you feel safer across Penrith. More than 1,000 people, including community groups and local businesses, filled in our survey or talked to us through discussion groups and listening posts. Thank you to everyone who has helped us shape this plan.

This Community Safety Plan sets the priorities for action over the next four years and builds on the achievements of our three previous plans. We are focusing on safe, well-maintained and well-used public spaces; domestic and family violence; and initiatives to bring people together and build positive relationships.
