Rangers

Our reliable power rangers known as the Ranger & Community Safety Services team are the closest thing we’ll get to superheroes, and face challenging daily issues mostly to do with dog control, security, vandalism and parking. Where possible, they aim to resolve problems via discussion, negotiation, public education and their mighty psychic abilities. (We’ll get back to you on that last one.) 

They are friendly folk, and perform a wide range of duties and responsibilities to provide you and the rest of the wider Vincent community with a number of services, including:

  • enforcement of Local Laws, Acts of Parliament and regulations
  • ensuring access to facilities and amenities through equitable parking management and control (street, verge and car park control)
  • preventing and deterring people from littering and dumping rubbish (litter control)
  • reporting and preventing vandalism and theft of City property
  • graffiti reporting
  • dog and other animal control and management
  • dog registration and tips on how to look after your pet dogs
  • returning lost pets to their owners and finding new homes for stray animals
  • reporting and removing abandoned vehicles and shopping trolleys
  • patrols of parks, reserves and buildings
  • unauthorised signs in public areas
  • assisting in the management of events
  • policing streets and footways and verge obstructions (permit application)
  • control of street traders
  • working with Police and other agencies to report anti-social or criminal behaviour.

Combining powers with the Co-ordinator Safer Vincent, the rangers form the Community Safety Services team. Involved in many programmes and initiatives to assist with community safety and crime reduction, the Ranger & Community Safety Services team help create a safer community for you and the rest of the Vincent folks to live, work and play. 

Got a safety concern? Give the Co-ordinator Safer Vincent a call on 9273 6032 or drop them a line to: mail@vincent.wa.gov.au.

Though incredibly quick and nimble on their feet, our rangers can only work so fast. Please allow them time to respond to complaints (within their scope of duties) and they will get onto it as soon as possible. 

For your information, there’s also an emergency after-hours service in case you need to contact a ranger after normal business hours.
