Home Safety

Find out how to reduce the chance of your home being burgled by using the City’s simple home safety checklist.

You can reduce the chance of being burgled by applying Designing Out Crime (DOC) Principles to your property.

Home Safety Checklist

Complete our simple home safety checklist to improve the safety and security of your home by applying DOC to your property. You can also request for a hard copy of our checklist to be sent out to you.

DOC is a crime prevention strategy, which aims to reduce opportunities for crime through the design and management of the built and landscaped environment. Visit the Western Australian Planning Commission website for a copy of their DOC Planning Guidelines. 

DOC principles can also be applied to prevent graffiti. Visit the Goodbye Graffiti website for information on Designing Out Graffiti.
