ACT Policing Project Safe Plate Southside

Location: Cnr Matilda and Callam Street, Phillip (opposite The Hellenic Club)

Project Safe Plate is an initiative aimed at decreasing the amount of vehicle number plate thefts and subsequent follow up offences in the Canberra region. Stolen number plates are often used to commit crimes such as petrol drive-offs, burglaries and traffic offences.

Bring your car down to the corner of Matilda and Callam Street in Phillip (opposite The Hellenic Club) between 10am and 4pm on the 8th of August and have your vehicle plates fitted, for free, with tamper-proof screws by ACT Policing officers.

Constable Kenny Koala and his friends will also be there to entertain the kids, and you can pick up a free ice scraper and Constable Kenny goodies.

In 2014, 858 number plates were stolen in Canberra. This is a decrease of 379 thefts from the previous year (2013).

As this year’s Project Safe Plate is being billed as a battle between North and Southside, the challenge has been set for Southside motorists to beat that target of 361 which were fitted in June this year.

By reducing the opportunity for criminals through Project Safe Plate to source legitimate number plates, ACT Policing aims to reduce many crime types and create a safer and securer community.

If your number plates are stolen, report it to ACT Policing on 131 444.
