Community safety

Moonee Valley is a safe place to live, work and to enjoy, and we want to keep it that way. You should be able to go about your daily activities and be confident and feel safe.

In any activity, your personal safety and the safety of family and friends should always be your priority. 

  • Be alert and make good decisions that enable you to enjoy yourself and stay safe. 
  • Your personal safety is improved when you are aware of your surroundings, know how to avoid risks, have access to reliable information and have prepared strategies to stay safe.

This section provide tips and resources to help enhance the safety of you and those around you. We also recommend the Better Health Channel as a comprehensive source of health and safety information.

The aim of our program is to advocate on behalf of the community and to achieve a coordinated approach to safety in collaboration with external organisations and Police.
