Central City Safety Plan

Hamilton Central City Safety Plan

Taking safety in the central city seriously and responding to public concerns about feeling unsafe are the drivers for a new safety plan adopted by the Council on 3 September 2014.

The Hamilton Central City Safety Plan has two approaches:

  • setting boundaries about what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour through enforcement of a public safety bylaw; and
  • providing help and support for homeless and vulnerable people through The People’s Project.

The safety plan has been created with the help of experts including the Police, Waikato District Health Board, health providers, government social services organisations and the Hamilton Central Business Association.

The plan contains a range of actions including expanding the CCTV camera network and City Safe patrols.​
