Council has launched a new safety campaign focusing on the importance of securing your car.

The Driving It Down campaign encourages residents to take four simple steps toward securing their cars:

  1. Park in a well-lit area
  2. Remove valuables
  3. Always lock your car
  4. Secure your keys

As part of the campaign, face-to-face engagement events with Victoria Police officers, Neighbourhood Watch members and Council staff will be held on the following dates:

Monday 6 May, 5pm–7pm
Ormond Station, North Road, Ormond

Saturday 25 May, 8am–12.30pm
Bentleigh Farmers Market
East Bentleigh Primary School
90 Bignell Road, Bentleigh East

Monday 3 June, 5pm–7pm
Bentleigh Station, Centre Road, Bentleigh

Passers-by will receive a keyring and postcard with key messages about safety and will have the opportunity to discuss community safety issues, such as car theft and theft from cars.

The Driving It Down campaign is funded by the State Government’s Community Safety Fund and responds to the high level of importance that Glen Eira residents have placed on community safety in feedback to Council.
