Eyes on the Street

Eyes on the Street is a former WA Police community safety initiative managed by the Crime Prevention and Community Liaison Unit. Eyes on the Street turns neighbours into the "eyes and ears of the police" by identifying possible criminal activities and suspicious behaviour and reporting it to the Police. 

Crime Stoppers enables you to report suspicious activity quickly and easily. Reporting to Crime Stoppers doesn’t create an instant police response – it is an intelligence-gathering role. If you need direct police attendance or response, call 131 444. In an emergency, call 000.
