International Safe Communities (Marlborough)

A safe community is one where people can live, work and visit without fear, risk of harm or injury.

Perceptions of safety – real or perceived – affect how people feel and interact in their community. Community safety is not only about reducing and preventing injury and crime, it is about building strong, cohesive, vibrant, participatory communities.

In March 2014, Marlborough became the 332nd community worldwide and the 25th community in New Zealand to gain accreditation as an 'international safe community'.  Read more about this on the Marlborough District Council website.
