A FORUM will be held later this month to give the community an opportunity to voice their views on gun crime in the area and how the problem should be fixed.
McMahon MP Chris Bowen will host the forum and all levels of government, along with members of various community groups, have been invited to give their input.
"There's far too much gun crime in our community and really everybody should be working together to fight it," Mr Bowen said.
Federal and local government representatives met recently to look at ways they can work together to fight crime in Fairfield and surrounding suburbs.
Discussions between the two levels of government have also included the federal government looking at ways they can help support council projects.
The council is in the process of developing a youth centre and adventure park in Fairfield.
Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said CCTV cameras would be rolled out across Fairfield over the next few years to tackle crime, rubbish dumping and vandalism.
"It's great to be able to work with different levels of government because the responsibility isn't just about one government," he said.
"It involves us all working together to make sure we deliver better outcomes for our local community.
"We shouldn't be seen to have excuses when it comes to these issues whether you're local, state or federal government.
"We're not saying that Fairfield has a high level of crime, what we're saying is we want a better city for our residents.
"No crime should be accepted."
Home Affairs and Justice Minister Jason Clare is working on federal solutions to stop crime including gun violence. He will speak at the forum.
The forum will be held on March 27 at Smithfield RSL from 7pm.
