Council undertakes and is involved in several community safety and crime prevention activities all with the intention to create a safer area for its residents. Many of these activities involve working with NSW Police and other relevant organisations to decrease the likelihood of perpetrators wanting to commit a crime. In 2020, this involves developing the new Community Safety Strategy, completing safety audits with the NSW Police, the improvement and implementation of lighting and CCTV cameras and other educational activities promoting personal safety.

Strathfield Council has updated its Community Safety Strategy 2020-2024.  Through this strategy, Council outlines actions to promote community safety and crime prevention over a four year period.
