Com­mon goals

Melville Times - - News -

THE City of Melville and WA Po­lice have signed a new Me­moran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MOU), re­con­firm­ing an on­go­ing com­mit­ment to work to­gether to achieve com­mu­nity safety goals. Melville act­ing Mayor Ni­cole Robins said lo­cal po­lice were a key stake­holder in achiev­ing a safe and se­cure com­mu­nity and the MOU meant im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion such as crime sta­tis­tics, crime hot spots and com­mu­nity is­sues could be shared in a mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial man­ner. “The City’s com­mu­nity safety ser­vice (CSS) of­fi­cers meet with po­lice on a weekly ba­sis and share in­for­ma­tion,” she said. “Lo­cal po­lice also share in­for­ma­tion, which as­sists the CSS with plan­ning and set­ting pri­or­i­ties, iden­ti­fy­ing hot spots and re­spond­ing to rel­e­vant crime and safety is­sues.” Since the daily in­for­ma­tion shar­ing was put in place the CSS has held more than 26,000 hot spot pa­trols.
