Home and property

We each have a role to play when it comes to making our homes, workplaces and neighbourhoods safer. Things you do when at home or away can make a big difference to your safety and reduce the risk of having your home burgled or property stolen.

Here you will find information and tips about how you can make your home safer, preventing motor vehicle theft, and the Victoria Police Partysafe Program.


The Residential Crime Prevention Information Kit is a useful resource to provide residents with information on home safety and other concerns around the home and neighbourhood.

The Security Assessment Guide for Residents is designed to help residents to assess the security of their home. It covers potential areas of vulnerability, and provides suggestions to make homes less susceptible to crime.

The information and advice offered in the Residential Crime Prevention Information Kit and the Security Assessment Guide for Residents is not intended to replace privately contracted security advice.
