Awards a safe bet for Logan
Published: 31 August 2016
A new award has been established to recognise initiatives that improve community safety in the City of Logan.
City Image Chairperson, Councillor Laurie Smith, said the inaugural City of Logan Safe City Awards sought to highlight the contributions of individuals, businesses and not-for-profit groups that helped to make communities across the city safer.
“Safety means different things to different people but what these awards recognise is that we all have a role to play in promoting safety in our neighbourhoods,” Cr Smith said.
“The police are the most visible champions of safety in our community and Council, through its camera network and a range of other initiatives, also works to create a safer environment but we can’t do that effectively without the help of our residents and businesses.
“These awards are about recognising those people who have contributed to spreading the safety message.
“Whether it has been an education program for young people designed to promote safe behaviours or a community group that has worked together to improve the lighting and visibility of a public space, we want to hear about it at these awards.”
There are four award categories: not-for-profit group, individual, business and government.
Nominations for the awards are now open through to 14 October 2016, with the awards ceremony being held later this year.
