Beat Burglar Bill
The City received a grant from the Department of Justice to produce a series of short films aimed at raising community awareness for creating a Safer Melville. Meet Burglar Bill.
You can reduce the chance of being burgled by applying Designing Out Crime (DOC) principles to your property. DOC is a proven crime prevention approach that has been shown to reduce opportunities for crime. The idea is to design or modify environments in way that reduce or prevent crime.
Help Beat Burglar Bill and make it tougher for crooks by applying DOC to your home Check out our Is your Home Secure Checklist and help protect your home from crooks.
