Community safety and wellbeing is a whole community responsibility
Everyone has a role to play in creating safe communities.
Shoalhaven City Council is committed to working closely with residents, visitors, community, Police, industry business and other interested parties to build strong and safe communities.
Following are some initiatives Council is working on to achieve this:

Meetings are held on a quarterly basis.
