The Town of Bassendean Ranger Service is our community safety team. Experienced rangers provide a variety of services aimed at safeguarding our community, including patrolling the Town for unsupervised animals, enforcing car-parking regulations and local laws, and enhancing the Town's sense of harmony and safety by minimising danger and nuisance.
Ensuring safer Bassendean neighbourhoods is in keeping with the community's aspirations, and programs to achieve this are outlined in the Safer Bassendean Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan 2007 - 2010.
Our hours of operation are 7am to 9pm from September to April (Summer period) and 7am to 7pm from May to August (Winter period). The Ranger can be contacted on 9377 7480, seven days a week. After hours you may leave a message and the request for assistance will be dealt with the following day.
The Town's Ranger Service is responsible for the impounding of stray dogs. All dogs are impounded at the RSPCA, 108 Malaga Drive, Malaga (cnr Reid Hwy and Malaga Dve), and can be collected between 10am and 4pm 7 days a week. Your dog must be registered before you can collect it.
