Crime and security tips

  • The latest trend in crime is for burglars to gain access using a pickhead or crowbar
  • Park inside a property if you can: 13 Ford Rangers were stolen in October in our precinct
  • Don’t leave your laptops near windows: there is lots of opportunistic theft of them, as well as electronic items, taking place in the early hours of the morning
  • Gardeners beware: they are soft targets when they work on the pavements outside their employers’ homes with the gate remote
  • Residents beware: saying long goodbyes outside your properties with the gates open can expose you to crime
  • People waiting for Uber cabs be vigilant while you wait: don’t be too involved on your cellphones
  • Beware of car guards: Often they are around vehicles that get stolen
  • Don’t leave items of value visible in your car when you park it
  • Beware: some cell phones have been snatched off cafe tables on the sidewalk
  • Before going away, test your alarms and leave a key with your neighbour
