CHRIS DAVIES, MT DRUITT

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

No, not re­ally. I have done in the past but not nor­mally. I’ve never felt ha­rassed here but I don’t hang around much. The other week there was a group of about 10 peo­ple at the far end of the mall be­ing very loud and it seemed as though they had been drink­ing but they didn’t come near me. GE­ORGE JEN­NINGS, QUAKERS HILL No, I don’t feel un­safe here but you do still see trou­ble from time to time. The dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity and re­li­gious groups that come here on Thurs­day night would be hav­ing an im­pact on that for sure. I haven’t seen many cops in the area or se­cu­rity guards. CHLOE IN­GRAM, GREYSTANES It’s the first time I’ve been here and, to be hon­est, I feel a bit wary. This area has a rep­u­ta­tion for be­ing a bit wild, I guess, and I just started a new job here. I haven’t seen any prob­lems at all though, which is good. MELISSA BIRD, ROOTY HILL I’d say it is safer now than it used to be, but that’s prob­a­bly be­cause I’m older. I think it’s good to have se­cu­rity in the mall and po­lice walk­ing through, but that doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily make me feel safer. I cer­tainly wouldn’t sit with my hand­bag on the seat be­side me.
