The City of Boroondara will host a community safety forum on Wednesday 31 October to celebrate Community Safety Month.

Victoria Police and other experts will lead a comprehensive panel discussion and discuss community safety issues.

Mayor of Boroondara Cr Jim Parke encourages residents to attend the forum to learn more about community safety and the initiatives we can take to feel more secure.

“The event will provide an outstanding opportunity for the community to meet experts working in the fields of safety and crime prevention.

“I hope Boroondara residents will support the wider community and take part because we all play a role in making the City a safe and comfortable place.”

A Q&A session will provide the opportunity for residents to ask the panel questions and raise any issues.

The three panel members will include advisor, consultant, educator, researcher and manager, Dr Michelle Noon. Dr Noon has extensive experience in justice and criminology, health promotion, preventing violence and social change and will discuss perceptions around community safety and the ‘fear of the crime paradox’.

CEO Neighbourhood Watch, Ms Bambi Gordon, will examine crime prevention through environmental design, while Inspector Stephen Noy, Boroondara Local Area Commander Victoria Police, will address crime, welfare and safety issues across the municipality.
