We regularly ask our community members for feedback about their perceptions of crime and safety in Logan. This helps us to plan and prioritise community safety activities aimed at increasing feelings of safety across the city.
To identify crime hot spots and top offences for the City of Logan, our Community Safety Program undertake analysis of Queensland Police Service data and develop annual crime profiles for each division and the entire city. This informs our planning and delivery of targeted community safety initiatives.
The Community Safety Program undertake research projects with various learning institutions and funding bodies. This makes sure that we deliver evidence-based crime prevention initiatives and remain informed of current crime trends.

Community safety presentations to community members i.e. personal safety, frauds and scams, business crime prevention
