Community Rangers

The City of South Perth’s community rangers play a valuable role in community education. They are often the first point of contact for information about the City’s community initiatives and the requirements of state and local laws.

Community rangers are involved in a variety of issues including:

  • Animal control and management
  • Dog attacks and dog barking
  • Fire hazards
  • Abandoned vehicles
  • Littering and rubbish dumping
  • Parking
  • Graffiti
  • Suspicious activity
  • Illegal signs and goods
  • Temporary signage
  • Removal of used syringes from public places
  • Community safety.

The rangers also operate the City’s Animal Care Facility and a successful re-homing program for stray and homeless animals.

The rangers also actively participate in a number of community activities including the RSPCA's Million Paws Walk.

Compliance

Rangers are also authorised to monitor and enforce compliance with specific Western Australian government legislation and local laws, including:

Emergency management

Rangers are an invaluable additional resource for Emergency Service agencies and are trained in Incident Control procedures, traffic control and other general skills. Rangers liaise with other agencies such as WA Police Service, State Emergency Service, DEC, Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA), Department of Agriculture, Water Corporation, Department of Community Development to support and assist these agencies with emergency incidents as required. Rangers deal with various response and recovery measures in case of an emergency.

After hours service

The City uses the services of Insight, a Western Australian based call centre to provide an after hours service.

Operators at Insight ensure that after hours callers receive the same timely, current and accurate information that callers would receive from our own staff during office hours.

All calls received by Insight are reported to the City the next working day - whether actioned immediately or referred back to us for follow up action.

The after hours service is available on 9474 0777, seven days a week.
