Operation Bounce Back

Operation Bounce Back 2014 - Car Security Begins at Home

Operation Bounce Back is an initiative of the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council, and Logan City Council. The initiative is a car theft prevention awareness campaign aimed at educating Logan residents about the myths and realities of car security.

Car thieves are quickly shifting their methods from 'hot-wiring' of vehicles towards targeting homes to access the key of 'secure' vehicles. In 2013, 70% of late model vehicles across Australia were stolen with their own keys. These offences are almost always opportunistic with the vehicles often use to commit other crimes, including other burglaries.
