Smartwatch vehicles

Our SmartWatch service is a vehicle security patrol service and is one of our safety initiatives. The vehicles conduct regular, coordinated patrols in targeted areas to deter criminal activity.

​​The role of the SmartWatch Service is to observe, report and monitor from a safe distance:

  • anti-social behaviour
  • undertake Holiday Watch patrols
  • vandalism and graffiti
  • suspicious activity/behaviour
  • hooning
  • neighbourhood disturbance
  • noisy property
  • reports of off-road vehicles
  • traffic management.

Call the police in an emergency

It’s important to remember that Rockingham SmartWatch officers are not police and they cannot directly intervene in criminal matters or arrest people.Where there is a crime in progress, or a dangerous situation, police should always be called first. For emergency situations you should dial 000 and for urgent (but non-emergency) police attendance you should call 131 444.

Community patrol requests
Smartwatch Officers Smartwatch Officers

Residents can request SmartWatch to undertake additional patrols of areas they are concerned about for things like  vandalism, graffiti, hooning, anti-social behaviour or suspicious behaviour. If SmartWatch Officers see something unusual or suspicious, they will record the activity and contact police. Generally, an additional patrol will last for around two weeks.
