Forum 3000 – Annual Police Community Sentiment Survey results with our local Inspector, and Q&A session with Police Association Victoria

Residents 3000 are pleased to invite you to our next Forum 3000 event, which will be held at the Kelvin Club, 14-30 Melbourne Place (off Russell Street) on Thursday, 3rd August 2023, at 6:00pm.

The annual Victoria Police Community Sentiment Survey 2023 was circulated from 31st March to 7th May 2023.

Finally the results are out, and Dale Huntington, Inspector, Melbourne East Local Area Commander (Melbourne East & Southbank) has kindly offered to present those results to our community at our next Forum 3000 event.

If you live, work, or socialise in Victoria, you had your say about your safety concerns, preferences when engaging with police, and experiences of dealing with the police in your community, and had answered the sentiment survey.

Just to give you a hint, Victorian residents have told the Police their top five safety concerns:


  1. Safety in public places
  2. Safety of my property and possessions
  3. Road safety
  4. Drugs and alcohol
  5. Cybercrime or online safety


  1. Safety in public places
