We have a vision of Belmont as a City that is attractive, safe, healthy and prosperous. The City has developed close working relationships with the local Police service and the Office of Crime Prevention so a collaborative and coordinated approach to crime prevention can be taken in the City. We are proud of the many initiatives developed to make our community a safer one.
Be Crime Free
BeCrimeFREE is the City's specific community safety and crime prevention website.
It is the registration point for BeCrimeAlert, a service which uses internet, short message service and email to communicate safety threats and issues to specific groups within the community.
On the www.becrimefree.com.au website you can also report graffiti and damage to council property, find out what the City is doing to prevent crime and what you can do and join the Neighbourhood Watch program.
Keep informed and keep your community safe by joining BeCrimeAlert at www.becrimefree.com.au
Graffiti / Criminal Damage
The City provides a free graffiti removal service. Report graffiti here.
The City is working to keep your community free of criminal damage in the form of graffiti. We aim to remove reported criminal damage (graffiti) within 48 hours of notification. Removal methods include:
- Painting out the graffiti on previously painted surfaces with one of our nine standard colours
- High pressure cleaning on unpainted brickwork and other hard surfaces and all surfaces that have been coated with a graffiti coating.
The City operates a 24 hour security patrol service to support the Police in maintaining law and order. The patrol officers can be contacted direct on 1300 655 011, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A great initiative is our FREE security appraisal service for all local residents and businesses.
