About the Safer Streets Patrol The difference between the Patrol and Police
- The Safer Streets Patrol was introduced in June 2018 to combat antisocial behaviour in key City precincts.
- The four person Patrol is funded and operated by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder. It works in partnership with police, business and other agencies to reduce disturbances and provide assistance to the community.
- The services of the Patrol sometimes extend beyond City precincts to projects which reduce social or other behavioural problems in the wider community.
- The Patrol responds to matters related to the statutory powers of local government. This includes public nuisance, obstructions on thoroughfares, harassment, offensive acts and littering.
- Police are responsible for enforcing the law and protecting property from criminal damage. This includes issuing fines and move on notices, making arrests and responding to criminal acts, critical incidents and emergencies.
- Shoplifting and property damage should be reported to the Police on 9021 9777.
