Summer Crime Crackdown
I was delighted to see the State Government has been listening and yesterday announced a summer crime crackdown - exactly what we have been calling for.
It means more frontline police spending more time on our streets over the summer months.
That’s more mounted police, canine units and bike and walking patrols in around our major precincts of Perth, Northbridge, East Perth and West Perth and precisely what we have been advocating for on behalf of our ratepayers, business owners and operators, City workers and visitors.
Everyone has a right to feel safe when they come into our City. We all have a role to play but ultimately law and order is the domain of our Police. I thank them and the State Government for their response.
Christmas Lights Trail
Our award-winning Christmas Lights Trail is back and it was great to see so many families out on opening night on Friday and across the weekend
The City is sparkling so make sure you check out the 26 lighting installations until January 2 and take advantage of the special parking offers.
There’s $5 night-time parking at select car parks all week and three-hour free parking on weekends and public holidays at His Majesty’s, Pier Street and the Cultural Centre Car Parks.
Look out for Santa spreading Christmas cheer every Friday in the Murray Street Mall and every Sunday night at the front of Council House.
