Join Councillor Andrew Zbik, Mayor of Lane Cove, for this week's Council update. Watch below:
In this week's Council update, Clr Andrew Zbik, Mayor of Lane Cove, highlights the recent and upcoming Council meetings as well as sharing an important update about community safety in Lane Cove. Our Community Wellbeing and Liveable Lane Cove surveys continue to reinforce that community safety is a top priority for our residents and businesses so we recently checked in with NSW Police to see what messages they had for locals, including:
Lane Cove LGA rates well below the NSW state average for incidents of assault, theft, malicious damage to property, drugs and every other major crime category.
You can take simple steps to prevent yourself becoming a victim of a crime by making it harder for offenders to steal your property so lock your windows and doors and lock your car.
Close to 60% of vehicle thefts and thefts from vehicles occur when the vehicle has been left unlocked by the owner.
There are a number of ways to report crime. If a matter is life threatening or there is a crime in progress, call Triple Zero (000). For a crime that doesn't require immediate assistance, you can call the Police Assistance Line on 131 444 or log it via the NSW Police Force Community Portal. You can also call Chatswood Police Station on 9414 8499 to request police attendance.
We often find that people can feel unsafe if an area is graffitied or damaged. To report graffiti in areas where Council can assist, please visit www.lanecove.nsw.gov.au/onlineservices or visit www.lanecove.nsw.gov.au/graffiti for more details on how to report graffiti in the community.
