Read the NZ Police Media Release: Signing the Memorandum of Understanding between NSNZ and NZ Police 'Partners for community safety'
Read "Perceptions of Community Safety in West Auckland" The report highlights that community connectedness plays an important role in increasing perceptions of safety. Community Safety is relevant at both individual and community levels. This research report is about perceptions of safety which is different from an objective measure of changing crime rates, or of actual levels of risk. The reason for this is that it is our perception of safety, or lack of it, that will significantly influence our sense of wellbeing, whether we feel comfortable to move about freely, the view we hold of other community members, and the levels of participation in community life by ourselves and our families.
