Safer Nedlands

The Safer Nedlands Plan addresses all five strategic goals put forward by the State Community Safety and Crime Prevention Strategy.

As a result, the following Community safety and crime deterrent programs are offered to the Community:

Neighbourhood Watch

Join Neighbourhood Watch for helpful information on home security, getting to know your neighbours and contacting the Police. You don't have to attend any meetings or commit any time. Please contact Neighbourhood Watch for more information on 9356 0555.

Operation Identification

Borrow an electric engraver free of charge from Nedlands or Mt Claremont Library and engrave your valuables to deter theft and assist the Police to return them if lost of stolen.

Safer Seniors Sessions

The City conducts Safer Seniors Sessions, providing free presentations from safety organisations and an opportunity to meet your local Police and Crime Prevention Officer. Visit the Safety for Seniors site for tips on home and personal safety.

Business Beat

Providing business owners and staff, access to free crime prevention information and services.

Free Security Appraisals

For free and impartial home or business security advice, please contact the Central Metropolitan District Police on 9284 3999 to arrange a visit from a Community Safety and Crime Prevention Officer.

Eyes on the Street Campaign

A co-ordinated intelligence gathering program encouraging State Government agencies, local governments and businesses to identify and record suspicious behaviour and report it to Police.

Burglar Beware Campaign

The City of Nedlands supports the Office of Crime Prevention's Burglar Beware campaign. This is an ongoing security awareness campaign encouraging home security improvement. Since its implementation in 2003, the number of burglaries in WA have declined at one of the fastest rates in Australia.
