Frankston police want to hear from local community

Frankston Police are inviting local community members to take part in the CommSafe Forum to be held 9am 18 August at the McClelland Gallery, Langwarrin.

Superintendent Fiona Bock will be joined by Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Regional Operations Rick Nugent, Southern Metro Region’s Assistant Commissioner Russell Barrett and Commander Therese Fitzgerald.

The panel will discuss a range of issues and crime trends relevant to the Frankston community with an opportunity for community members to provide feedback and raise awareness on community safety issues.

Topics to be covered include:

• High Risk Driving

• Youth Crime

• Family Violence

• Mental Health

• Emergency Management

Any issues identified by the community may be entered in Frankston’s Community Issues Register as part of Victoria Police’s Neighbourhood Policing framework. A dedicated sergeant manages this register, allocating issues to local police officers who develop solutions in collaboration with local partners.

Frankston police are looking forward to hosting members of the local community at the CommSafe Forum, but it is important to know that police are always available to listen to community concerns.

The local community can speak to us when they’re out and about or email their local police station with any areas of concern. The email addresses for your local police station are listed on our website – Link.
