Community safety

City of Gold Coast works in partnership with police, community and industry groups to create a safe community for residents and visitors.

From planning safer public spaces to tackling specific safety issues such as graffiti, the City is involved in a range of programs and projects to enhance feelings of safety and reduce crime.

We want all residents and visitors to be able to experience the unique lifestyle the Gold Coast has to offer, free from fear of crime. We need your help to report crime and address its causes.

In case of an emergency, call Triple Zero (000) for Police, Fire or Ambulance.

To report a non-urgent crime or incident, or for general police enquiries, phone Policelink on 131 444
(07 3055 6206 for interstate / mobile callers) or report a non-urgent incident online.

To provide information about a crime, call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

The City works closely with the Queensland Police Service and local neighbourhood watch groups.

For more information on ways you can be involved, contact the Gold Coast Police District Crime Prevention Unit on 07 5581 2840.
