Rotorua Mayor, Tania Tapsell says a community safety hub will be established in the CBD in response to calls from the public for a more visible Police presence in the inner city.
The hub will form part of the inner-city revitalisation programme and it is envisaged that other community support services including customer service, crime prevention and public information could be provided from the hub.
Mayor Tapsell said the hub will increase visibility and responsiveness and ensure Council’s security staff, Police, and other community services are working together to support and protect our community.
Council’s Community and District Development Committee will receive a detailed proposal for the hub at its meeting tomorrow (Wednesday 13 September).
This report will provide recommendations for the hub’s location, resourcing and hours of operation along with a proposed launch date.
