Community Safety

Creating safe, vibrant communities is an important part of supporting the health and wellbeing of people in Whitehorse. A sense of safety can be affected by how we perceive and feel about a place as well as what we witness in that place. As a Council we work with partners across different sectors to address issues which impact on our sense of safety.

Community Safety Register

The Whitehorse Community Support Register is a joint initiative between Whitehorse City Council, Neighbourhood Watch and Victoria Police.

The register is a free program run by accredited volunteers. It helps seniors living in Whitehorse to feel safe and connected to their community.

Once on the register, participants are offered regular phone calls to check their welfare. The register contains important information that can be used by emergency services.

The Whitehorse Community Support Register gives residents, relatives and friends peace of mind, knowing that someone is watching out for their welfare.
