Community Safety Symposium
Through the City of Logan Safe City Strategy and Action Plan 2016 – 2020 (PDF 5463 KB), Council has committed to delivering the Community Safety Symposium initiative annually until 2020.
The initiative, established in 2015 and hosted at Griffith University Logan Campus, brings together a range of specialised and expert speakers who aim to increase awareness and education to vested members of the City of Logan community on priority safety issues.
Council with key stakeholders have already delivered two successful annual Symposiums which each focused on topical community safety issues.
A core working group consisting of representatives from Logan City Council, Griffith University, the Queensland Police Service and Queensland Corrective Services – Probation and Parole has been established to plan and deliver the annual Symposium.
2017 Community Safety Symposium
The 2017 Community Safety Symposium was held on Thursday 2 June 2017 at Griffith University Logan Campus and focused on contemporary and pertinent matters relating to youth offending.
On the day we heard from renowned professionals in the field across three topical themes:
- Theme 1 - Causal elements;
- Theme 2 – Preventative measures;
- Theme 3 – Intervention and management approaches.
In total, 150 participants from government, non-government, community organisations and students in the Logan community who are working, studying or have a keen interest in the youth offending field attended the day making it a huge success.
