How safe is Eastern Preston near Northland Shopping Centre

I'm relocating to Melbourne and have looked at a town house in Preston right behind Northland shopping centre. I've been given mixed reviews about this suburb and some say it's not safe close to Northland. The parklands attract a lot of crime and people under the influence. Is this true? The house I'm looking at doesn't have a lockup garage or alarm systems installed. Will this be a problem. Any information would be great to help be decide about the house. Thank you!

You have chosen one of the most dangerous areas in Melbourne. Look around Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Northcote, Brunswick. I work at Northland and every day there are druggies, drunks, ice users, and abusive people everywhere.
