Operation Bounce Back

Operation Bounce Back The Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) recently reported, the number of motor vehicle thefts fell by 35 per cent in Canterbury-Bankstown, between 2013 and 2017. No  

The Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research (BOCSAR) recently reported, the number of motor vehicle thefts fell by 35 per cent in Canterbury-Bankstown, between 2013 and 2017.

This improvement has been largely due to the success of the Operation Bounce Back campaign, an initiative of the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council, and run by the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the initiative is aimed at educating drivers on how to reduce the likelihood of vehicle theft.

“We will shortly be running a new five-week advertising campaign in local cinemas, newspapers and social media, and distribute more than 200 Car security begins at home posters to more than 100 local automotive businesses,” Mayor Asfour said.

“The methods for stealing vehicles have changed over the years. Thieves don’t hotwire cars anymore, they now often go to great length to steal keys from homes.

“They gain entry through unlocked doors and windows, so the first thing we should do is keep them locked.”

Metro Petroleum Yagoona was one of the first businesses to display Council’s new Operation Bounce Back posters.

"This is a very important initiative against vehicle theft,” Manager, Harry Singh, said.

“I once met someone whose SUV was stolen and it was just debilitating for him. That’s why we’re always happy to do whatever we can, on our part, to speak out about issues like this.”

The five car models most often stolen in NSW last year were:

  • Holden Commodore VE (MY06-13);
  • Toyota Hilux (MY05-11);
  • Toyota Hilux (MY12-15);
  • Holden Commodore VY (MY02-04); and
  • Holden Commodore VT (MY97-00).

The Operation Bounce Back campaign will run until October.
