A simple knock on the door from a Neighbourhood Watch volunteer gave one local resident an opportunity to make his home more secure.

Through the City of Gosnells’ Keep it Secure – Don’t take a holiday from home security program, Stephen from Thornlie became the latest winner of $300 worth of home security products.

The program, which is run by the City of Gosnells in partnership with the WA Police and Gosnells District Neighbourhood Watch, has been developed to create awareness among home owners about home security.

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said that, as the latest Keep it Secure winner, Stephen was able to purchase a new video doorbell and intercom system.

“This program is about educating the community about crime prevention strategies and how residents can take an active role in reducing crime in their neighbourhoods,” the Mayor said.

“There are many things we can do to make our homes more secure and this program is a great way to learn how each of us can take the lead in our own homes.”

Residents can find out how to win up to $300 towards a home security item of their choice on the City’s website at www.gosnells.wa.gov.au.
