Business crime prevention
This page contains information about actions business owners can take to reduce crime. It includes advice, details of programs the city offers, and where to go for more information.
What steps can you take?
As a business owner, there are a lot of actions you can take to prevent crime. The WA Police have a range of resources available on their website to help you protect your business. You can download a kit to conduct your own business security audit, learn about fraudulent transactions, cybercrime, security alarms and CCTV, and much more.
The Business Beat program started in the western suburbs and was so successful that it has spread
around the state. The city’s community development officer and a police officer visit businesses with hard copies of resources and provide real, practical advice. We’ll try to get out to every business in the city over the course of a year, but we know that sometimes there are special concerns; to request a Business Beat visit, please contact the city 9237 9222.
Ever unsure of which number to call?
- Please phone 000 (life threatening emergencies)
