Operation Bounce Back - reducing your risk of opportunistic theft.

Consultation has concluded

The City of Casey in conjunction with the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council are launching Operation Bounce Back.

Operation Bounce Back is about implementing simple methods to reduce the risk of you becoming a victim of opportunistic theft.

In Australia a car is stolen every 12 minutes.

Casey is rated second in Victoria for car theft. Urgent action is needed to change these statistics. There are simple steps we can take as a community to reduce our chances of becoming a victim of opportunistic theft.

Advances in security technology have made it impossible to “hot wire” a modern car which has resulted in thieves targeting homes to steal car keys. These thefts are almost always opportunistic, with offenders often entering premises through unlocked doors and windows to grab keys in easily accessible spots.

Most of us reply heavy on our vehicles in our day to day life. Having a car stolen can be stressful, inconvenient and costly.

There are many anti-theft devices that can be installed to vehicles. However, no matter how sophisticated these systems are, if a thief can steal your keys your car could be gone long before you realise your keys are missing.

Small simple steps to reduce you chance of becoming a victim of opportunistic theft:

  • Always lock you car - always physically lock your car even at home.
  • Close all windows
  • If possible keep you car locked inside a garage.
  • Park off the street in your driveway if you don't have a garage.
  • Park in a well-lit area to increase the risk that others will detect thieves
  • Consider using a steering wheel lock - particularly for older vehicles.
  • Install a GPS tracking device

The National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council have provided the City of Casey with 100 FREE GPS tracker vouchers. The GPS tracker trial is run in conjunction with Victoria Police. In the event that the vehicle is stolen Victoria Police can tap into the tracking system and locate the vehicle, assisting them to apprehend the thieves safety and swiftly.

If you want to go into the running to win a FREE GPS tracker and installation for 12 months as well as the opportunity to win 30 x $50 fuel vouchers complete our survey below.

Please note: GPS trackers are only available to City of Casey residents who own a registered vehicle and hold a current Victorian drivers licence.
