The City of Sydney’s Safe City team reminded Sydneysiders to protect their homes from opportunistic crime this summer.
The team announced that Sydneysiders, before leaving their homes, should remember to lock up, ensure their home looks lived-in by mowing their lawns and putting lights on timers, and avoid packing their car too early if leaving for a holiday.
Also, the Safe City team said Sydneysiders should ensure their home insurance is adequate and up to date, and leave their contact details and destination information with a trusted family member or friend.
“The risk of theft often increases over the holiday period. We will continue to work closely with NSW Police over the holiday period to raise awareness on ways people can protect themselves from opportunistic crime,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
NSW Police Corporate Spokesperson on Crime Prevention, Chief Superintendent Brad Shepherd said “easy measures like fitting security doors, securing windows, activating your alarm, and locking gates or sheds make your property far less likely to be targeted by opportunistic criminals”.
To report a crime, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit?crimestoppers.com.au.
Further, the City of Sydney is calling for new design standards on apartment mailboxes to protect Sydneysiders from identity theft and fraud.
“We’re working with NSW Police and other agencies in the MailSafe campaign to advocate for new measures to protect Sydneysiders from identity fraud,” the Lord Mayor said.
