Crime Prevention & Community Safety

Crime Prevention Campaigns

Given the known impacts of high volume crimes and the high offence rates, Crime Stoppers Victoria and Victoria Police are working in partnership with the Department of Justice to deliver a High Volume Crime Prevention Campaign.

The campaign is called Help Yourself and targets the following high volume crimes: residential burglary and theft from motor vehicle, with a secondary focus on personal theft.

The campaign aims to:

  • reduce crime rates for high volume crimes in the pilot period
  • increase awareness about crime prevention, safety and security
  • improve community engagement and participation in taking preventative steps to secure their homes, vehicles and personal belongings.
