How Safe Is
Use our free self-assessment tool to find out how safe your home is from burglary and what you can do to improve security in and around your home. It will take you around 10 minutes to complete. How Safe Is My Place is an initiative of Neighbourhood Watch Victoria and is supported by RACV.
About this tool
Almost one-third of residential burglaries occur without force. Many of these are opportunistic, with thieves gaining access through an unlocked door or window. Although crime is, on average, declining across Victoria, it still occurs.
There are some simple steps you can take to help protect your home and belongings, making it difficult for a lazy, opportunistic thief to enter your home and steal your property.
Based on the world-renowned Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles, How Safe Is My Place aims to get you thinking about your current home security and what you can do to protect your home, as well as providing advice and practical tips. After you finish, you will be emailed a report.
Peace of mind in your home
Residential burglaries are often opportunistic, with research showing that three Victorian homes are burgled every hour. While some burglaries are unavoidable, there are ways in which homeowners can help to keep their home and family secure.
RACV seeks to help shape a smarter, safer and more connected community for Victorians and is proud to be partnering with Neighbourhood Watch and the How Safe Is My Place initiative. Completing the self-assessment tool will provide you with practical tips and advice on how to keep your home, treasured possessions and family secure.
