Maitland Community Safety Plan

The Maitland Community Safety Plan is the strategy through which Maitland

City Council will coordinate its efforts to produce and encourage a safer and
more inclusive community. The Maitland Community Safety Plan will run for three
years from 2013-2016.

The Plan has been developed through community and stakeholder consultation
and provides a critically informed and locally-specific strategic approach. The
Plan aims to reduce instances of malicious damage that negatively impact upon on
perceptions of safety and the public amenity of our city. As part of this
intention, it also addresses the associated issue of alcohol-related anti-social
behaviour, and promotes improvements to Council’s Crime Prevention through
Environmental Design strategies.

Maitland City Council endeavours to be a leader in community safety. The
initiatives in this plan build collaborative relationships with various
community stakeholders, and highlight Council’s commitment to maintaining strong
partnerships with primary law enforcement agencies. Community safety is
everyone’s responsibility. Through the actions and commitments outlined in this
plan we can work together to make Maitland safer.
