Gone in less than 60 sec­onds

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - PENINSULA SNAPSHOT -

The City, in part­ner­ship with six other lo­cal gov­ern­ments and the WA Po­lice South East Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice District, is work­ing to min­imise theft from mo­tor ve­hi­cles. ‘Gone in less than 60 sec­onds’ is a cam­paign de­signed to raise aware­ness of how quickly thefts from mo­tor ve­hi­cles can oc­cur, es­pe­cially when valu­able items like phones and bags are vis­i­ble and unat­tended. From 1 June un­til 1 De­cem­ber 2016, the City will be re­leas­ing a video on its Facebook each month to high­light the CCTV footage of real life thefts that have oc­curred in less than 60 sec­onds. As part of the cam­paign, a clearly marked ve­hi­cle will be vis­it­ing lo­cal shop­ping centres, com­mu­nity events and hot spot lo­ca­tions dis­play­ing a range of items that are com­monly stolen from cars. To help de­ter thieves, the City has free car win­dow safety signs avail­able from the Civic Cen­tre and South Perth and Man­ning Li­braries.
