Community Crime Prevention
Crime prevention involves activities that seek to prevent crime and offending before it occurs. It includes activities which address fear of crime.
The prevention of crime requires individuals, communities, business, community organisations and all levels of government to work together.
To support local community action, this website has fact sheets, guidelines and information on crime prevention. It has information about community crime prevention grants and tips on managing crime prevention projects. You can also use our map to see where crime prevention projects are happening across Victoria.
Community groups and councils are invited to apply for grants of up to $10,000 to deliver local crime prevention projects.
The new Crime Prevention Evaluation Toolkit has resources and templates to help Victorian councils better evaluate their public safety infrastructure projects. Download the toolkit now.
