In the excitement and rush to organise your holiday, home security can be easily forgotten. To assist residents, the City of Canning offers a holiday watch patrol at no extra cost.
For more safety and security tips, download the City of Canning Community Safety Handbook or click here to watch the 'Tips in securing your Home' video.
The Ranger and Community Safety Services team work closely with the police. However, they do not act as a replacement.
For all criminal matters, the police should be called on 131 444. In case of an emergency, please call 000.
Holiday safety tips:
- Register for a holiday watch patrol a few days before you leave
- Ensure all doors and windows are locked
- Let trusted neighbours know you are away - ask them to watch out for your property and collect your mail
- Cancel deliveries such as newspapers
- Consider installing automatic timing devices for lights and radios.
