How safe is your suburb this holiday period?


Think you live in the perfect neighbourhood? Sometimes it’s harder to judge than you think.  This Christmas, Signal Security is doing an east coast fly around to check out who’s saying what when it comes to suburb safety!

Putting VIC, NSW & QLD under the magnifying glass, we’ve checked out some of the most crime prone and quietest suburbs over the last two months…and are also giving you the tools to check out how safe your suburb is.


Maybe call them sceptics, but it appears authorities in Victoria are more concerned about revealing the most crime prone suburbs than those that fly under the radar.  For those that live in Victoria, we like to think this is just us undertaking our public duty!

Most dangerous suburbs:

  • Heidelberg West, Heidelberg Heights, Bellfield
  • Williams Landing
  • Mernda, Doreen
