Review gives City of Joondalup ranger service thumbs up

THE City of Joondalup’s City Rangers service is working well, according to a report from its 12-month review.

In November 2015, the council voted to combine its ranger and community patrol services and rebrand it as City Rangers. This has been in place since December 1, 2015, with the council requesting a 12-month review.

At the City’s March meeting, the council received the report with no recommended changes identified.

“The service has improved team accountability and has significantly increased the level of enforcement activity provided to residents inclusive of a dedicated suburban parking service and a 24/7 community patrol service supplementing the current ranger service,” a council document said.

“This model has achieved a high level of positive response from the community.”
