Keeping Mosman Park Safe – Town Seeks Input on Revised Plan

The Town of Mosman Park has listened to ongoing requests from its community, and in response is updating its Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan.  We are seeking your ideas to help make the Town safer.

Acting Mayor of the Town of Mosman Park, Cr Zenda Johnson, explained that the community has consistently voiced its concerns about ongoing criminal activity in the Town including theft and break-ins to both property and vehicles, and Council is reviewing the Plan to take account of those concerns.

“In response to concerns that have been raised, we are canvassing practical measures to help the community to enhance their personal safety,” Acting Mayor Johnson said “we are looking at all ideas including monitored, 24-hour CCTV cameras at key installations, and paid security patrols in crime hot-spots.”

Acting Mayor Johnson emphasised that Council remained open-minded about possible solutions and encouraged the community to express their ideas by completing an online survey that is available now, and closes on 16 November 2018.  The survey is available here and can be provided in hard copy upon request from the Town’s Administration Centre.

Depending on the community’s willingness to fund initiatives, the Town will explore a variety of measures to enhance public safety. Acting Mayor Johnson said: “The Town is keen to work with community members and welcomes practical suggestions to bring about effective solutions for a safer environment for all residents. Finding the right solution is the key and the Town is keen to hear residents’ feedback.” 

As part of this ongoing conversation on safety and security, the Town will again host Neighbourhood Barbeques on 13 February (Rope Works Park) and 27 February (Gibbon Park) 2019 where residents can meet and speak with Rangers and other Council staff, access information about services, and report their experiences.

As part of this ongoing conversation around safety and security, the Town will again host Neighbourhood Barbeques on 13 February (Rope Works Park) and 27 February (Gibbon Park) 2019 where residents can meet and speak with Rangers and other Council staff, access information about services, and report their experiences.

Council is working in close collaboration with two community safety groups in the Town, that have been set up in Mosman Park in response to ongoing criminal activity, as well as with the WA Police (whose presence in the Town is now led from Fremantle) and with other stakeholders, including the Department of Communities, who provide accommodation for many tenants in the Town.

Council encourages residents to report incidents and suspicious behaviour, to record the dates and times of events, the descriptions of possible offenders, and to record images on smart devices where possible. 

By reporting incidents as and when they happen, WA Police are able to develop a history and pattern of activity, which assists them in making resources available.
