Stay safe: October is Safer Melville month

OCTOBER is Safer Melville Month, with the City of Melville hosting a range of activities and information sessions to help the community understand the important role its plays in improving security.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said educating local residents enabled them to take action and responsibility for their own home, surrounds and personal protection.

“We have always had a focus on safety in the month of October, which is an important opportunity to provide information but more significantly helps to empower and activate the community to play its part,” he said.

“This year we are encouraging people to attend a Safer Melville event to access a range of safety tips, but also to understand how important it is for them to stay informed as connected communities are safe communities.”
