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.
95.5 per cent of Port Phillip residents agree that they felt safe walking alone during the day and 64.9% agreed that they felt safe walking alone in their local area after dark.
