Creating safe, vibrant communities is an important part of supporting the health and wellbeing of the Port Phillip Community. A sense of safety can be affected by both how we perceive and feel about a place as well as what we witness in that place. As a Council, we work with a number of partners across a number of different sectors to address issues which impact on our sense of safety, with a particular focus on Family Violence and Alcohol and Other Drug use.
In Port Phillip, 95.5 per cent of residents agree that they felt safe walking alone during the day and 64.9 per cent agreed that they felt safe walking alone in their local area after dark.
