Property crime offences can affect any Canberran at any time, and this is why the ACT Government has created a plan that is designed specifically to continue to protect Canberrans from this area of crime.
The vision of the Property Crime Reduction Strategy 2012-2015 is to make Canberra a safer place to live through a whole of government effort to produce a sustainable reduction in burglaries and motor vehicle thefts.
To achieve this vision the Strategy has set a target to reduce reported ACT burglary crime by a further 10% and motor vehicle theft by a further 20% by 31 December 2015, from a 2010 baseline.
|Victim Type||Base Year (2010)||Target by 31 December 2015|
|Burglary||4240 victims||▼ 10% (approx. 3816 victims or less)|
|Motor Vehicle Theft||1331 victims||▼ 20% (approx. 1065 victims or less)|
