ACT Policing don’t want anyone to steal your license plates, so they’re going to secure them with tamper proof screws. My plates are secured with twigs I’ve jammed into the holes at the moment, so I might take advantage of this.
This Saturday (March 23) between 9am-1pm, motorists are encouraged to bring their vehicles to Gungahlin Marketplace. ACT Policing officers will be present to fit your plates with tamper-proof screws, making it more difficult for potential thieves.
Project Safe Plate is an initiative that forms part of the broader ACT Policing Property Crime Reduction Strategy. ACT Policing has set a target of reducing motor vehicle theft by 20% and burglaries by 10% by the end of 2015.
