Apartment Security

Apartment Security

To help ensure apartment, town-house and unit security is maintained in inner city and suburban areas the WA Police Crime Prevention Unit provide the following suggestions to assist you avoid becoming a victim of crime:

  • Ensure that automatic (keyless) security gates and roller doors to your complex, building or underground parking fully close behind you before you and no one follows you through the gate.
  • Ensure all your doors and windows are locked, including balconies, windows and sliding doors to town-houses, units and apartments. Don’t live under the false notion that burglars don’t climb to second or third floors!

  • Remove all natural ladders (i.e. bins, building refuse) to balconies, second floors etc.

  • Ensure all your property of value is marked.

  • Report all crime or suspicious behaviour you observe to Police on 131 444 (000 if an emergency). Even if Police attendance is not required, reporting allows WA Police to assign resources accordingly and notifies them of any on-going issues in the area.

Remember: “Preventing Crime Is Everyone’s Business”.
