Community nominations open to join Crime Prevention and Community Safety Working Groups

Gunnedah Shire Council

A number of community positions are vacant on both the Crime Prevention Working Group and the Community Safety Conference Working Group, and interested community members wanting to make a difference in improving the safety amenity of the Gunnedah Shire are encouraged to nominate.

The Crime Prevention Working Group supports the ongoing implementation of the Shire’s Crime Prevention Plan, and has been a driving force behind the extension of CCTV throughout the CBD, providing input into Alcohol Free Zone declarations and lobbying to state and federal government for changes to domestic violence legislation.

The group has also been involved in the planning and delivery of a number of drug and domestic violence community awareness events including the Say No to Drugs Walk around Wolseley, Gunnedah Says No to Violence messages on Council’s waste and water fleet and the Gunny Get Your Home Secure and Gunny Get You Home Safe initiatives.

The Community Safety Conference Working Group is new, and members will help plan the delivery of a crime prevention and community safety conference in Gunnedah that will seek to attract delegates and key note speakers from within NSW and interstate.

Interested community members can nominate by completing an expression of interest which can be obtained from Council’s Administration Building, 63 Elgin Street Gunnedah, downloaded here:
