It is safe. There is the odd break in like any suburb. The majority of the negative crime statistics come from assaults which arise from people who are passing through the suburb from neighbouring areas and fighting with each other. It is generally very quiet so any sort of issue like this is dealt with pretty quick. It is a suburb that continues to get better and safer.
Yes, have lived in Westminster last 3 years and in area 6 years.
Absolutely not. I live a few suburbs across and I have no idea what the other respondents are talking about.
Check crime stats. You will find Westminster, and nextdoor suburbs high up on the list.
There is a reason why it's cheap.
Have been here for nearly 21 years (since i was born).... no problems at all!
We have been here for 10 years here. It is fantastic area. I recommend to all of my friends to come here.
I've lived in Westminster for over a year now and prefer it here than west Perth!!
Our street is quiet and minimal noise....unlike west Perth noisiest street ever Kingston avenue
Absolutely not. Lived here for 25 years.
My partner and I have been year over a year now, and we have not been personally affected in any way by crime. We took precautions when we bought our brand new unit - like we would even if we lived in Peppy Grove - and installed CrimSafe doors and an alarm. We moved from Maylands, and our car and home insurances dropped by about 30%, which is why I find some crime stats about Westminster a little bemusing. We live in a quiet street, and other than a druggy neighbour who moved out recently (we had many more druggy neighbours in Maylands), we don't hear much at night, not cars, not people. We were pleasantly surprised, actually. I would recommend Westminster, but like anywhere, take out your own personal security measures.
We have lived here for 21 years with not one robbery! Westminster IS SAFE.
