This project successfully reduced anti-social behaviour on and around the WA metropolitan rail system using an inter-agency CPTED approach. It involved stakeholders from 5 local governments and 28 stakeholder organisations and was funded by the WA Office of Crime Prevention via PATREC.
Several reports were published, including:
