Your community has spoken!

Pyrenees residents completed 338 community safety surveys in December 2018 to help identify the local safety concerns that matter the most to them.

If you completed an online survey via Engage Victoria, or were part of the many residents that shared your insights to Victoria Police at the Avoca Riverside and Beaufort Markets, Avoca and Landsborough community events, and also the Coffee with a Cop in Learmonth, thank you for your involvement.

What's next for your Community Safety Network

The Pyrenees Community Safety Advisory Group has been established by local police in collaboration with other Pyrenees community stakeholders to address the local safety concerns identified through the community safety survey.

Police will be out and about in the Pyrenees in May and June to let you know about the survey results and how they will be working with the local community to identify local solutions.
