(CAP) The City of Canning was one of the first councils to introduce 24/7 safety patrols.

This year marks 25 years of uninterrupted service by Canning’s Community Safety team, who have been available around the clock 24 hours a day, seven days a week since 1998.

Over the last quarter century, the team have completed community patrols over 9125 days and nights.

During this time the team have responded to more than 300,000 customer requests, plus won the 2021 Ranger Team of the Year Award.

Canning was one of the first councils to introduce a 24/7 patrol and security service back in 1998, this service has been providing peace of mind to keeping its residents, animals and broader community safe ever since.

Canning mayor Patrick Hall said the City’s focus on community safety was a high priority.

“Our Community Safety Services team plays a vital role in helping our residents feel safe and secure in their homes and community, helping us work towards creating a welcoming and thriving city,” he said.

The city also provides a Holiday Watch Service for residents, as well as continuing to deliver its popular Security Incentive Scheme, which this year saw a 400 per cent increase in funding (by $80,000).
