State government funding for How Do I Report? magnet safety initiative

Thursday, 10 October 2019

In response to concerns for the safety of our residents, the Geelong and Bellarine Community Safety Network has received State Government funding to the value of $50,000 to deliver a range of community safety initiatives.

A portion of this grant has been allocated to the design, print and distribution of a ‘How Do I Report?’ magnet, that aims to promote reporting avenues for issues in road safety.

The City, together with Victoria Police, Crime Stoppers, and the Victorian Government, have created the community safety ‘How Do I Report?' magnet which includes phone numbers and information about each community safety agency, and aims to assist the public to contact the correct agency when an issue arises.

The City of Greater Geelong, Victoria Police, Crime Stoppers, VicRoads, and TACs contact details and services will feature on the magnet for a better understanding about each agency’s responsibilities.

Your free magnet will be available for collection at the Geelong Community Safety and Emergency Management Day, which is to be held on Sunday 13 October from 10:00am to 2:00pm at Steampacket Gardens.

Improved community health and safety is one of the council’s priorities. The magnet will help community members know who they should contact in the event of a safety issue.

Come to Steampacket Gardens on 13 October 2019 and grab one – you never know when it might come in handy.

The Geelong and Bellarine Community Safety Network project team has listened to the local communities concerns and as a result has produced a simple but decisive information magnet.

This magnet will guide and enable people to contact the relevant agency and raise their concern in a timely manner. This will assist in ensuring a safer community for all.
