WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SUPPORT REGISTER?

We are now organised into larger community groups which cover all of the residents of the City of Ballarat. A Community Support Register is a record of a person's details which can be accessed in an emergency. It gives you confidence that if you are unable to provide information (say, due to accident or illness) your medical details and who to notify are readily available to relevant authorities. EVERYONE is able to take part we are being proactive in taking the initiative on many issues affecting the safety and security of all residents in our community.

 

HOW IS THE REGISTER ORGANISED?

The Ballarat & District Community Support Register is managed by the Ballarat Neighbourhood Centre. Approved volunteers which are quality trained and are required to undergo police checks, positioning to help in the administration of the register.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

 Your details will be entered and managed on a confidential computer database.

You are issued with:
- an identity card (for your wallet or purse) and a window sticker for your home.

In case of emergency your details can be accessed by an authorised member of the police force (duty sergeant or higher) at the Ballarat Police station.

Your records will not be made available to any other person or organisation except Police, Ambulance, Hospital or Fire Brigade, and then only after the approval of a senior Police Officer.
