That’s the motto with which Neighbourhood Watch Landsdale has been asked to go for their number plate anti-theft screw drive after being advised to change their original motto of “screw it”.

Debates over the use of the words “screw” and “secure” aside, the popular number plate antitheft screw drives are back for another year with two events being held this Saturday on both sides of Lake Joondalup.

Residents in the City of Joondalup can attend a meeting in Joondalup, while City of Wanneroo dwellers have access to one in Landsdale.

At both places, the anti-theft screws will be free and will be attached by volunteers.

Former Joondalup police officer Bob O’Sullivan is assisting with a giveaway on Saturday in the carpark between Masters and the Caffissimo coffeeshop off Joondalup Drive with help from Joondalup Police and Neighbourhood Watch Heathridge.

The hardware chain is donating the screws, while the cafe is lending parking space for motorists to have the devices attached to their plates.

In Landsdale, Masters will again provide the anti-theft screws with Wanneroo Local Policing Team 2 officers and Neighbourhood Watch Landsdale members attaching them to cars on the corner of Hartman Drive and Gnangara Road.

Antitheft screw events

Joondalup: carpark between Masters and Caffissimo, Joondalup Drive, 10am to 2pm.

Landsdale: Masters carpark at corner of Hartman Drive and Gnangara Road, 10am to 2pm.
