Westral is proud to announce that it has formed a Crime Prevention Partnership with Crime Stoppers Western Australia.  Crime Stoppers in Australia is the most trusted information gathering service for people wanting to share what they know about unsolved crimes and/or suspicious activities. Members of the public can provide in complete confidence information about unsolved crimes, people wanted by the police, crimes being organised or suspicious activities. An independently prepared Community Impact Report shows 82 per cent of all Australians feel safer knowing Crime Stoppers exists. The research also found that 81 per cent of Australians believe the option to not say who they are when contacting Crime Stoppers gave the public the confidence to submit reports.

In 2019, Crime Stoppers programs across Australia received over 300,000 contacts via the 1800 333 000 phone number or its website, resulting in over 155,000 information reports being provided to police. The information directly led to 5,215 apprehensions and 18,686 charges being laid.

Crime Stoppers helps solve a crime every 14 minutes somewhere in the world, and in Australia Crime Stoppers is contacted every 100 seconds and assists in making 22 arrests on average every day.

If you would like to make a report, contact Crime Stoppers WA on 1800 333 000 or via its website, https://www.crimestopperswa.com.au/

Home security products, that is, Security Doors and Window Screens plus Window Security Film, are a major part of Westral’s business so we are particularly proud to be partnering with such an esteemed community policing service.

Having commenced manufacturing doors, screens, blinds and awnings in 1973, Westral, together with the Crime Prevention Bureau, helped develop the security doors and screens we see today. Westral is constantly looking to improve each and every security product it manufactures and has its own testing facilities in-house. It also uses Standards Australia as an independent testing authority to conduct manufacturing and testing audits on its products. That is why Westral can use the Australian Standards 5 ticks logo on its doors, something no other company in Australia can make claim to.

Westral is still owned by the founders and is now very much a family run business with 200 staff. It has a passion for personalised service and made to measure manufacturing. Its police licensed consultants are available to help customers make the right choices when it comes to security doors and screens for their homes.
