Gone in less than 60 seconds
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.
