Neighbourhood Safety Working together as a community can improve both personal safety and household security. There are some simple things to remember to help secure your house. Install motion sensor lighting and consider putting up fences or other barriers, such as garage doors at either side of your home. Mayor Tracey Roberts discusses safety with City of Wanneroo Rangers.

Back up standard key locks with a security lock on

your doors and ensure your windows are just as secure. Key operated locks provide a much greater level of security than manufacturer fitted catches. Have security screens fitted to the doors or portion of the windows that are left open for ventilation. Get to know your neighbours, that way you can all look out for each other and prevent intruders or burglaries.

Hester Avenue upgrade nears completion Northern suburbs residents will benefit from the completion of Wanneroo’s road works to improve the Hester Avenue link with Wanneroo Road at Neerabup. “I welcome the completion of these important road works,” said Mayor Tracey Roberts, “residents have been waiting for a long time and it is great to see this major upgrade, from both a traffic congestion and safety perspective. “These improvements will make travelling for the community both quicker and safer.” Funded by Federal Black Spot funding, the City of Wanneroo completed its part of the $635,000 project in February.

The upgraded intersection of Wanneroo Road and Hester Avenue, Neerabup is near completion.

A big improvement is expected in traffic flow at the intersection - the only east-west connection for residents of Clarkson, Quinns Rocks, Merriwa, Mindarie and Butler and beyond. Instead of only a single lane, as has been the case for many years, traffic

Incorporated into the design is the use of a photoelectric cell which ensures the lights operate efficiently and only when the ambient light drops below prescribed levels.

City of Wanneroo employee Martin Fegan and Cr Rudi Steffens inspect the new floodlighting.

Monday to Friday due to limitations in current infrastructure at the park. This will be reviewed based on the outcome of the master planning process and future works scheduled to support the implementation of appropriate infrastructure.

Our four-legged friends often find their way out of enclosures with Rangers coming across many stray dogs during their regular patrols.

Dogs are taken to the Animal Care Centre in Ashby for safe keeping, with their photo posted on the City’s website. Over 95% of animals are either returned to their owners or re-homed.

If your dog is found by one of our Rangers and is wearing a current Council registration tag, the City will contact you, or give them a call during the day on 9405 5000 or 1300 138 393 after hours.

Safer streets for our children Traffic around schools at peak times can often be chaotic, so it’s extremely important to take extra care when parking and dropping off your children.

:: Plan to arrive at the right time - lingering cars can cause congestion and traffic problems, try to aim for outside peak times.

Follow these ideas on what you can do to make streets safer around schools when parking.

:: Park on the school side of the road - this avoids young children having to cross the street.

:: Be aware and courteous of children, pedestrians and other drivers at all times.

:: Be a ‘perfect parker’ park correctly in a space to avoid vision issues and increase traffic flow.

:: Use Kiss and Drive zones for quick drop offs or pickups when available. :: Pay attention to signs parking in a No Parking or No Stopping zone can be extremely dangerous to students and residents in the area and fines do apply.

:: Talk to teachers teachers can educate students and parents alike about taking care when entering and leaving school grounds :: Reduce speed - keep speed to a minimum and follow the 40km/hr signs at all designated times. :: Don’t block driveways, park on footpaths, get frustrated or obstruct children’s crossings.

For example, people should not park contrary to signs, or on median islands (including flush medians), or on footpaths.

Parking Problems? The City of Wanneroo’s Traffic and Ranger Services staff are more than happy to help with any parking and safety concerns near your school. For advice or help please contact 9405 5000 or visit wanneroo.wa.gov.au

Big hearted Mick empowers the next generation A day in the life of a City of Wanneroo youth worker is not your typical one. There are no set times when young people may need help, or just want someone to talk to. Youth Outreach Worker, Mick Leeming knows it all too well and loves the diversity youth work offers. “I do half admin, half out on the street, we can go anywhere from Girrawheen to Two Rocks. When we are in the office it can be organising rosters or planning for programs, researching agencies and putting young people in touch with external agencies that have contacted us,” he said. “A lot is going out and finding young people that might need help.” A majority of the day comprises of call-outs, whether it’s from residents, rangers, police or young people themselves. Their aim? To be the middle man. To listen to young people and develop a sense of understanding around what they might be going through. “A lot of the stuff is just engagement and talking to them, letting them have a voice to be heard. That’s what they’re after,” Mick said.

Wanneroo Youth Outreach Worker Mick Leeming at Butler Community Centre skate park.

“They just want someone to talk to, to let out their problems.” Helping the youth is exactly what Mick loves “I wanted to do something different and use my skills in a better way... I’m studying psychology and counselling at the moment...it’s kind of my passion. I just wanted to get involved.” “There have been people who want to get themselves off drugs or get themselves out of a social group, find employment or studies. There are a lot of cases like that.

“The help is out there. There are a lot of people willing to help through schools, the youth centres, even the police. There are places out there to get help - they don’t have to feel alone.” Mick was also recently given an award by Mayor Tracey Roberts for his efforts in the Relay for Life. As well as talking and helping young people, there are many fun activities the City of Wanneroo youth workers organise.
