Operation Safe Plate Saturday 21st June from 10am to 2pm at the Vic Roads car park, Lygon Street Carlton.
Operation Safe Plate is an initiative that aims to combat the theft of registration plates and possible follow-on crimes such as petrol theft and toll evasion.
Police and Carlton Housing Estate Neighbourhood Watch volunteers will be on hand to remove original number plate screws and fit the one-way anti-theft screws. Theft of number plates from vehicles continues to be an issue in our local community. Using the security screws makes attempted theft of number plates more difficult, acting as an effective deterrent.
The theft of number plates is opportunistic crime and taking this precaution of one way screws is one way the community can feel confident they have taken an effective measure to prevent crime. Take advantage of this opportunity to protect your largest mobile asset.
