Conference Overview

There has been a distinct shift in vehicle theft methods, with residential burglaries to access the keys of ‘secure vehicles’ now recognised as the most common means to steal cars. This change along with increased incidents of aggravated burglaries and violent on-road interceptions in Victoria in particular is leading to considerable community anxiety.

This important conference will set the scene for developing collaborative responses to these emerging challenges. Featuring presentations from acknowledged national and international experts the conference will examine these emerging dynamics of car crime in the context of—
• Our changing economy
• Rapid urban development
• Vehicle theft as a precursor to other forms of crime
• The emergence of violent juvenile offending

'Towards a Secure System' is the concept of applying a Secure System approach to combating vehicle crime. The approach takes a holistic view of the dynamics of vehicle theft and the interaction between vehicle design, motorists’ perceptions and choices, offender behaviour, and government and industry practices to minimise the opportunity for theft to occur, increase the likelihood and consequences of detection, and increase the effort and risk required to profit from stolen vehicles.

Attendance at this event is a must for all those with a professional interest in reducing vehicle crime including:
• Senior Police Managers
• Crime Investigators
• Insurance Investigators and Claims Managers
• Government Policy Managers
• Crime Prevention Officers
• Community Safety Practitioners
• Juvenile Justice Practitioners


Registration Fee: $225 (excluding Wednesday's Dinner)
