Safety and Wellbeing
Council is working to maintain Mosman as a safe, welcoming environment through strategies that improve public safety and reduce crime. These are being addressed through working collaboratively with our local Police – Harbourside Local Area Command – as well as community organisations and Fire Brigade, Ambulance, State Emergency Services and Domestic Violence support services.
Closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras are located at Council facilities to reduce crime by deterring potential offenders, assist police in the detection and prosecution of offenders and to assist Council in general claims management. The CCTV system also aims to enhance community safety.
Council supports the Lower North Shore Domestic Violence Network, a forum for workers in domestic violence and related support services to promote community awareness and undertake projects to reduce the incidence and impact of domestic violence within the Lower North Shore.
Responses to graffiti and vandalism, including prompt removal of graffiti, preventative measures and supplying information on graffiti offences.
Mosman Council has made its beaches, children’s playgrounds, playing fields and some public space areas smoke free.
