Operation Bounce Back
Operation Bounce Back is an initiative of the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council, which focuses on car theft prevention. The initiative aims to educate Logan residents about the myths and realities of car security, raise awareness of how to prevent car theft and push home the important message of keeping your car keys safe when at home.
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 used to commit other crimes, including other burglaries.
