Conducting regular foot patrols of public spaces to deter antisocial behaviour, the Safer Streets Patrol are now actively patrolling the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder streets.
The officers will attend to a wide range of duties to safeguard the community. They have been undergoing training, meeting with business owners and agencies, including Police. The training provided was a strategically planned induction, as they become prominent to the public, it was essential that relationships were established and they were able to observe public use of spaces, undertaking crime prevention audits, and assist with City projects and initiatives.
CEO John Walker said “the Safer Street Patrol had a multitude of duties, from working with agencies to reduce volatile alcohol and substance use, preventing and reporting incidences of graffiti, damage and vandalism and working closely with the local law enforcement agencies, particularly in the exchange of crime intelligence and information.”
“We are intent at addressing antisocial issues and we envisage this programme will not only address the issues at hand but deliver results by proactively resolving unreasonable interferences with residents and visitors enjoyment of the City’s public spaces.”
To report antisocial behaviour phone 08 9021 9600, approach the Officers in the street or call into the City’s CBD Customer Service Centre, Shop 8-10, 272 Hannan Street, open between 8.30am and 4.30pm.
