The City of Kwinana ranger team, referred to as City Assist, have been awarded runner up, 2019 WA Ranger Team of the Year Award, at the WA Rangers Association Conference Gala Dinner held on Wednesday, 18 September 2019.
The WA Ranger Team of the Year Award recognises deeds and achievements by Local Government Ranger teams in their service to their local community.
Ranger teams across Western Australia regulate areas such as animal control, littering, fire permits, fire control, abandoned vehicles, parking and enforce State and local laws.
Mayor Carol Adams said the way the City worked with the community was very important and the City Assist Team continued to deliver a high level of service in often challenging circumstances.
"Ranger services are such an iconic part of a local government's service offering, providing a visible presence for our community to enhance their sense of safety, and maintain a level of order," she said.
"I am delighted our ranger team has been recognised for their hard work and dedication to the local community. This is great recognition for the outstanding teamwork and dedication undertaken by all staff within the City Assist Team."
City of Kwinana Ranger Geoffrey Copley also received recognition for his 15 years of service being a WA Ranger.
"Geoff has served as a Ranger for a large number of local government authorities throughout the state, which includes a mixture of both regional and metropolitan postings" Mayor Carol Adams said.
"Obtaining a 15 year service medal is very rare this day and age, as Ranger work has become more of transient profession in recent times due to the very difficult nature of work officers are exposed to at times" she said.
