Operation Bounce Back - Are you car keys secure?

Fairfield City Council has renewed its partnership with the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council to bring back a campaign targeting car security and theft reduction.

Operation Bounce Back returns to focus on improving community safety.

“Council cares about the safety of our community and has developed new strategies to educate our culturally diverse community about general car security and theft,” Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said.

“We want to encourage people to be alert and aware of different ways to stay safe and minimise the opportunity for theft.”

“We are connecting with our community through cinema advertising, social media and printed materials and products translated in our City’s major community languages.”

Fairfield and Cabramatta Local Area Commands (LACs) are key partners in the 2017 campaign. Fairfield LAC will meet with locals to talk about car security at their August Coffee with a Cop pop-up at Thomas Ware Plaza in Fairfield and Cabramatta LAC will continue the dialogue at Freedom Plaza in Cabramatta.

“We all need to be vigilant in protecting our belongings and making sure we don’t encourage theft, so Council has produced a range of useful products, including a tote bag, chamois and air freshener, with reminders to keep your car keys and valuables safe when out and about in Fairfield City and beyond,” Mayor Carbone said.

“I encourage our City’s residents to meet with our friendly Local Area Command at the next Coffee with a Cop pop-up, where they can receive a free gift from Council and learn more about this important initiative.”

Operation Bounce Back is a joint initiative between Fairfield City Council and the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council.
