Community health and safety


The Australian Safe Communities Foundation defines a safe community as:

'One in which all sectors of the community work together in a co-ordinated and collaborative way, forming partnerships to promote safety, manage risk, increase the overall safety of all its members and reduce the fear of harm’.

Council is proud to have strong relationships with many community partners including Victoria Police, EACH, MetroTrains, Eastland, Eastern Community Legal Centre, Women's Health East. Neighbourhood Watch and other service providers. 

Feeling safe in Maroondah

Maroondah is a safe place to live, work and play and we’d like your help to keep it that way. In any activity, your personal safety and the safety of your family, friends, colleagues and neighbours should be everyone’s priority.

In developing our community vision Maroondah 2040: Our future together the community identified a strong desire for Maroondah to be a safe and welcoming city with safety continuing to be a key focus for Council.

We are committed to providing programs and services that support our community on important issues such as preventing family violence, reducing alcohol-related harm and perceptions of safety.
