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.
