Expansion Of Community Based Crime Prevention

NEWS RELEASE

15 March 2001

EXPANSION OF COMMUNITY BASED CRIME PREVENTION MODEL

A new, bicultural model for a ‘Safer Auckland City’ has been approved by Auckland City Council’s Community Development Committee. This is in response to a review conducted last year identifying the best practice framework for achieving crime prevention and to compare both strengths and weaknesses in the model.

Auckland City Council has been a sponsor of the nationally designed and locally implemented Safer Community Council model since its inception in 1995. It decided to review the model and as a result of the research and consultation, the new revised model was developed.

“The developments with the new model are exciting and progressive,” says Councillor Penny Sefuiva, chairperson of the Community Development Committee. “It will ensure sufficient staff resources to plan and seek sponsorship and support and adequately resource community based projects.”

“Auckland City remains a sponsor and funder and will pursue a proposed three-way partnership with the New Zealand Police and Ngati Whatua. An executive committee will be established to set visions, attract additional funding and continue to raise the profile of the Safer Auckland City concept.”

The current annual budget for Safer Auckland City is $250,000. The budget consists of $175,000 from the City Council, which covers staffing and operational costs, and an additional $10,000 per annum for provision for safety audits. This includes an additional $90,000 allocated this financial year to begin implementation of the review findings. A further $75,000 is contributed by the Crime Prevention Unit as contribution towards staffing costs and a community grant pool. It is estimated that a budget of between $390,000 and $650,000 will be required to implement the new model.

“We will now begin implementation within existing levels of funding and work towards the full model as new funds are sourced,” says Councillor Sefuiva. “Although there is a shortfall of around $140,000 to fully implement the proposed structure, we consider a significant amount of work can be undertaken even with only partial implementation at this stage.”

The Council will be actively seeking the $140,000 required from other agencies.
