Community safety and crime prevention
Council has a strong commitment to community safety and crime prevention. Council addresses these issues through its Community Safety Committee.
The Community Safety Committee is a partnership between Woollahra Council, Rose Bay Police Local Area Command, residents, local community organisations and local businesses. The Committee's work is governed by Terms of Reference (PDF) that have been endorsed by Council.
