"The suburb with the lowest crime rate Peppermint Grove also has the most expensive homes. It recorded 14 burglaries, four car thefts and one assault in the year to February.
The second-safest area was the Town of Cambridge, which includes City Beach, Floreat, Wembley and West Leederville. The crime rate across these suburbs was 15 for every 1000 people.
Peppermint Grove Shire president Rachel Thomas said: "Because we are small, most people tend to know each other and there is a terrific sense of neighbourliness. We also have a very active Neighbourhood Watch and Community Safety Committee with representatives from most streets across the shire."
In the Hills, Serpentine-Jarrahdale has the third-lowest crime rate. Not surprisingly, Perth, which includes the nightspots of Northbridge, has the highest rate."
Westminster is virtually Balga, but I dont think they are any worse nowadays than a few other suburbs around.
I worked at Mirrabooka shopping centre doing voluntary work in the op shop (now closed) and it opened my eyes -people fighting, stealing non stop -always police cars there.
