School Watch is a partnership between the WA Police and the Department of Education aimed at protecting our schools from vandalism, theft and damage.
Who to contact:
School Watch: 1800 177 777
Police: 131 444
Security Monitoring Centre: 9264 4632
When you contact School Watch, Department security officers can quickly attend schools in the metropolitan area. The Police will attend if called.
Every year, criminal damage to schools not only costs Western Australian taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars, but also inconveniences students, their families, teachers and local residents.
While the Police and Department work closely together to minimise crime at school premises, you too can help. The community's role is vital, particularly after school hours and during school holidays.
Most importantly, if you live near a school and see or hear suspicious behaviour immediately contact School Watch Security or the Police.
