Each month, the Amalgamated Locksmiths’ blogging team bring you the crime stats for a different Melbourne suburb. This year we’ve looked at Fitzroy, Melbourne CBD, Northcote and Abbotsford. Today, we will look at Preston’s Crime Statistics.

We get our information from Crime Statistics Victoria (CSV), the government department responsible for the publication of crime statistics since 2013. Their data is compiled in March every year.
