Community Safety

Gunnedah Shire Council has long recognised the value of working collaboratively to prevent crime and enhance community safety.  Council acknowledges that matters of law and order cannot be solely the responsibility of the Police and state agencies. The community and local government can work together to help make our Shire a safe place.
