We love Tarneit too! We have never seen any crime and we live here and get around alot. Of course there will be robberies, this is Melbourne! Tarneit is very safe and have never had any issues or felt unsafe. Come and visit, go to the local shopping centre and get a feel of the place and the community, it's mainly a family suburb.
I think 3000 which is CBD would be pretty horrible .... bunch of other horrible crime stats dont make tarneit a nice place ... but sure if you think its okay who am I to argue.
Here is another link with some happenings around the area ... Also do visit the mcdonalds in tarniet ... or better yet just google it ... literally gangs.
I lived there for three years and saw it progressively get worse. It was a decent place ... but lets face it ... its gone absolutely downhill with no planning or any thought put into the area and the advent of all these gangs.
Hi kayk1, I live and love tarneit too and so does my family and all my neighboors, we are a true community that cares and supports each other! People unfortunately concentrate on negative publicity sometimes! Crime rate, boo hoo! try living elsewhere in melbourne or sydney so close to the city, the closer to the city you are the worst the crime rate!
Live and love Tarneit?
You must be taking good stuff?
Qualified for an opinion? Yep we lived there 5 years - hell
Robberies burglaries are everywhere
I live in the one of the most exp suburbs per sqm in Melbourne and ppl pinch bicycles if u temporarily lock them in the street
Apartment which i own with security guards 6pm to 7am daily CCTV security garage is even broken into in Sth Melbourne by apex gang member
Nothing wrong with tarneit or Pt cook owned there too 4-5 years without any issues
Nothing particularly to do with the suburb more to do with the Melbourne
Just sharing some comparison that I did from the link that you shared!
A 50 - Robbery- Changes from 2016 - Tarneit is up by 290%
A 50 - Robbery- Changes from 2016 - Toorak is up by 200%
A 50 - Robbery- Changes from 2016 - Berwick is up by 172.7%
A 50 - Robbery- Changes from 2016 - Elsternwick is up by 100%
A 50 - Robbery- Changes from 2016 - Truganina is up by 87.5%
And guess what!
Melbourne CBD, postcode 3000, is probably the highest with 286 Robberies reported so far in 2017, only 54.6% has changed from 2016 thou! And Tarneit stands at 39 Robberies in 2017!
So in short, the robberies are increasing every where, Tarneit is not the only suburb! But as you can see Tarneit is better than postcode 3000 atleast! No point making Tarneit look so bad! :)
Anyway Thank you for sharing the link. The data is definitely concerning. And I am sure the governing authorities will do something about it.
