The Office of Crime Prevention is the centre of excellence in crime prevention in Western Australia, hosting a range of programs and funding various research and crime prevention and reduction initiatives.
By building partnerships with business, government and local communities, the Office of Crime Prevention seeks to engage every Western Australian in the fight against crime, after all - crime is everybody's business.

We are in contact with the local Mandurah's Neighborhood Watch and are able to support them by issuing application forms to NHW to all of our existing and future clients. We believe that it is all of our responsibility to create a safe and secure community. Our company is members of Neighbour Hood Watch.
Neighbourhood Watch is a series of programs aimed at making individuals aware of crime prevention initiatives and activities in and around the home, within rural communities, by the ocean and in schools.
It is about working together as a community to improve our personal safety and household security. Most importantly, it is about encouraging interaction and a sense of responsibility between neighbours and communities.
Neighbourhood Watch is about you, your local neighbourhood, the wider community and the WA Police working together to establish and maintain a safer community by:
- reducing violence, crime and fear;
- building a safer community;
- preventing crime that affects you;
- enhancing effective communication; and
- developing community spirit.
We encourage the use of crime stoppers to aid in the reduction of criminal activity in our community.
Crime Stoppers is a telephone hotline for members of the community to provide anonymous information about criminal activity. This information is electronically sent to the police establishment nearest to where the crime is occurring for investigation.
- You, the caller, do not need to give your name. Remaining anonymous allows you to overcome any fear of involvement or retaliation.
- Your call is not recorded or taped. You are not identified in any way.
- Callers are allocated a code number:
- To provide further information
- To check on the progress of the investigation
- To claim a reward.
Through our contact with Mandurah's Community Policing Officer and Neighbourhood watch we are able to aid in the awareness of home and business and home security in our community.
Burglar Beware is an ongoing awareness campaign reminding the public to lock up their homes and warning burglars that they will be caught.
Burglar Beware encourages the public to play its part by improving home security and working with their neighbours and the police to deter burglars.
The Burglar Beware program addresses a range of issues that impact on burglary including:
- home security;
- offender diversion and intervention;
- community awareness and involvement;
- targeting known and repeat offenders;
- school attendance;
- stolen goods disposal;
- information and intelligence gathering;
- coordination between government agencies; and,
- linking with non-government organisations.
Oz Tech Security is constantly in contact with the Mandurah Police to providing information to assist with their investigations.
We regularly support local schools with cash donations to allow them to inform and educate young people on the importance of personal security and the use of the Safety House Programme. We also support the Safety House Book that is distributed to all school age children in the Peel area.
Safety House has a commity in our local community to develop, operate and monitor Safety Houses in our area. This is to ensure that standards of safety for children are maintained and that Safety House signs are current and clearly visible to any child needing assistance. The local Safety House Committee is also active in the school and community to promote and raise awareness of the benefits of the Safety House program.
We are currently in the process of organising information events in the Peel Region to allow our company to provide information regarding the ease of use of security products and the availability of the Safety and Security Rebate for seniors. We will also be distributing basic safety and security information to seniors for at home and when out and about. What is the Safety and Security Rebate for Seniors?
This one-off rebate delivers WA Seniors Card holders up to $200 per household towards buying and installing home security devices. Claims are limited to one per Seniors Card holder and one per household. The scheme starts on 1 July 2009 and ends on 31 March 2012.

All staff members at Oz Tech Security have completed a training program to allow our company to identify and record suspicious behaviour in our community and report it to police.
Eyes on the Street is a coordinated intelligence gathering program which encourages State Government agencies, local governments and businesses to identify and record suspicious behaviour and report it to police.
The program aims to establish partnerships between the Office of Crime Prevention, WA Police and organisations whose workers spend their days on the streets and are therefore in the best position to witness and report suspicious or criminal activity.
Eyes on the Street increases police intelligence about goings-on in the local area and the high visibility of members' branded vehicles helps deter crime. - Back to top
Eyes on the Street currently has 172 partners, including:
- major shopping centres;
- local governments;
- educational institutions;
- government agencies/departments; and
- industry bodies.
