Local CBD residents participated in an on-site building security audit last month, in a bid to expand the service to more towers.
Residents 3000 president John Dall’Amico said the training in Docklands was beneficial for volunteer auditors who would, with additional training and the continued support of the Victoria Police be able to help CBD-based owners’ corporations (OC) improve their security and safety of residents.
“Until you get on the ground and start identifying the shortfalls that are present , you can be quite blasé about where you live,” Mr Dall’Amico said.
Mr Dall’Amico said that a number of members were now keen to continue the training with the prospect of helping OCs undertake security audits.
“We’re not saying that living in the CBD is inherently unsafe. In fact we live in a very safe city, however ,” Mr Dall’Amico said. “It’s just that vertical living presents specific challenges that people may not be aware of .”
The training was conducted by Leading Sen Constable Glenn McFarlane and supported by building manager Kevin Moore at the Yarra Point tower in Docklands on May 19.
