​​​​In response to an increase in the number of car registration plates being stolen across the area, Council are conducting a campaign to raise awareness about the issue. Stolen plates can be fitted on other cars and these vehicles can then be used for fuel theft, to run red lights or speeding offences as well as other criminal activities. It's important we all work to stop this, as the implications can be quite serious.​

​City of Canterbury Bankstown has purchased sets of anti-theft screws which can easily be fitted to vehicles to help prevent number plates from being stolen. A locking mechanism in the anti-theft screws prevents thieves from being able to remove the number plates with a screwdriver. These screws are available from all good hardware stores at a small cost.
