Community Safety Plan & Partnership

Community Safety Plan & Partnership

We want everyone to be - and feel - safe in our community. Many of Council's services support community safety and we work together with local groups, businesses and organisations including the police, to improve safety around the City.

See the  Penrith Community Safety Plan 2023-2027

The Penrith Community Safety Partnership is a formal committee of Council. It meets four (4) times a year and brings together representatives from Council, Penrith and St Marys Police, Penrith City Centre Association and St Marys Town Centre Management, the Penrith Valley Chamber of Commerce, as well as the transport, health and education sectors and a range of community organisations, to:

  • Identify and address community safety issues, and
  • Review and monitor the effectiveness of the Penrith Community Safety Plan. 

For more information, contact Council's Community Safety Coordinator at .

Projects and initiatives to help people feel and be safer in Penrith include:

  • alcohol free public spaces
  • Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED)
  • support for Walk Against Domestic Violence
