City seeks feedback on crime and community safety
Community members are invited to share their experiences and concerns about crime and community safety in the City.
The City is asking residents, business owners and community groups to share their concerns and experiences on crime and community safety within the City of Bayswater.
Feedback collected from community members will inform the development of the City’s Crime and Community Safety Plan.
The Plan will include practical actions aimed at improving safety, service delivery and reducing crime within the community.
Preventing and managing crime is a shared responsibility. The City is committed to working with WA Police and its community to address this important issue.
Community members are invited to share their experiences and concerns about crime and community safety in the City by filling in a survey by 31 March 2023.
Hard copies of the survey are available from the Civic Centre and City’s three libraries.
The City will also be hosting a number of pop-up sessions at:
- Bayswater Community Concert with Dami Im - Saturday 4 February, 4.30-8.30pm - Pat O'Hara Reserve, Morley
- Bayswater Twilight Market - Friday 10 February, 5-8pm - Bert Wright Park, Bayswater

As part of the pre-engagement for the Crime Prevention and Community Safety Plan, the City hosted a forum at the Morley Noranda Recreation Club to talk to its community about crime and community safety in the City. The forum was well attended by the community, Councillors, WA Police, Neighbourhood Watch and City officers.
The City allocated $30,000 towards the development of a Crime and Community Safety Plan in its 2022/23 Budget.
