Community Safety Month

Melton City Council is committed to increasing safety in the municipality through Community Safety initiatives.

Community Safety Month is an annual event held every October and reminds us that we all have a role in making our communities safer.

The campaign shines a spotlight on a number of community safety issues, including personal safety, cyber safety, road safety and mental health and wellbeing.

Throughout the month you’ll have an opportunity to attend a range of free and low cost initiatives including:

  • a Victoria Police CommSafe Forum
  • basic car maintenance workshops 
  • child car seat restraint fittings 
  • youth road safety activities 
  • financial wellness workshops and more.

See a list of events below and stay up to date by liking the Healthy Melton Facebook page.



Free Car Restraint Fittings

Fastening your seat belt when you travel in a car can save your life. Ensuring your child’s car restraints are fitted correctly is just as important but getting it right can be difficult. Did you know 70% of child car restraints are incorrectly installed or used, posing a serious safety risk to children travelling in those restraints?
