Community safety and crime prevention

Community safety programs
You can play a part in keeping the community of Subiaco alert, aware and safe. You can set up a neighbourhood watch network in your street by connecting with your neighbours, becoming aware of your local environment and displaying Neighbourhood Watch resources.
The Safety House Program

Local schools run the Safety House scheme in their area. If you are interested in becoming a Safety Householder, visit the Safety House WA website.
