Since moving to Canberra in August last year, I’ve had three separate issues where I have been really worried for my safety and have called the police.
The most recent was this weekend, early on Sunday morning at about 5.45am when some jerk-wad tried to break into our house, while we were home tucked up in our beds.
The other two times, a junkie pervert at the back of Ainslie shops harassed me on the way to work (on two separate occasions); and just before Christmas some guy was poking around our front yard and tells me he’s just checking the gas meter but he’s not driving an ActewAGL vehicle and when I called ActewAGL they said no-one was scheduled to read the meter…
I live in Ainslie, which is generally a really nice place to live, despite all this stuff happening.
Anyways, I guess I’m just wondering if this stuff is normal for Canberra/Ainslie/Northside?
I’ve lived in Sydney most of my life, and also lived in some rougher places (Lightning Ridge), but have never called the police before moving to Canberra…
It makes me so angry that I can’t feel safe in my own home or suburb.
