The Timaru District Council, in partnership with the Ministry of Justice, has sponsored the Timaru District Safer Community Council since 1993.
The Council has delegated authority to a Safer Communities Committee made up of representatives from Government and social agencies. This committee reports back through the Community Development Committee.
Safer Communities focuses on reducing alcohol related offending, violence, family violence and youth offending; facilitates the co-ordination of local agencies and initiatives to benefit individuals and at risk families.
