Melton community safety project
Melton and Caroline Springs police have launched a six-month crime prevention and community engagement campaign called Operation ‘Connect Melton’.
As part of the project, police will run a series of community days, workshops and a youth safety expo in order to educate the community about crime and safety information.
The project is in response to local safety concerns raised by Melton residents at the community safety forums held in Melton and Caroline Springs in late 2017.
The events planned as part of Operation Connect Melton will address the themes raised during the community safety forums; including community cohesion, disengaged youth, road safety and crime prevention.
This project is being delivered with support from Neighbourhood Watch Victoria and Crime Stoppers Victoria will deliver a community safety and crime prevention campaign.
Crime Stoppers 'Say something' campaign
On 22 July, Crime Stoppers Victoria will launch the ‘Say Something’ campaign, aiming to promote community safety and crime prevention. Crime Stoppers Victoria is asking residents to speak out by reporting information about crime or any suspicious activity to 1800 333 000 or online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
The campaign will run for two weeks on social media, in local newspapers and on radio, advertisement panels in shopping centres and through community engagement activity.
