The Safer Car Park Program addresses steal from motor vehicle offences by educating the community about the importance of removing valuables from cars when unoccupied.
Community Safety officers and local police periodically conduct audits in streets or commuter car parks where steal from motor vehicle has been identified as problem in the area. Police and NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) evidence, such as hot spot maps, are used to identify an increase in or consistently high levels of criminal activity at the location.
During the audit, police and community safety officers will assess whether any items are on display. Police will then record the registration number and then organise for a letter to be sent to the owner, notifying them of the audit and the valuables sighted on the day.
