Our initiative

At Neighbourhood Watch Victoria, we aim to help you feel safer and more connected, wherever you live, work, learn or play.

So, we launched How Safe Is My Place, a program which helps you learn where your home might be vulnerable to crime and the simple, actionable steps you can take to feel safer.

We have created some fun, interactive tools and resources where you can learn more about security, get some simple and effective tips on how you can safeguard your home, protect your property, and help make your neighbourhood an even better place to live.

How Safe Is My Place is an initiative of Neighbourhood Watch Victoria, supported by RACV.

A Victorian home is burgled every 24 minutes!*

Although crime on average is declining across Victoria, it still occurs. And, as we return to a new normal, our homes become even more vulnerable.

Almost one-third of residential burglaries occur without force and largely for opportunistic reasons. While some burglaries are unavoidable, there are ways in which you can keep your home and family secure and deter lazy, opportunistic thieves.

*Statistics as of 2021.
