Home security and personal safety is particularly important as you get older. Gawler Home Assist and Community Care and South Australian Police have information and services to help keep you safe and informed.

SAPOL Home Assist Program

The South Australia Police (SAPOL) Home Assist Program is funded by Home and Community Care (HACC) which is a partnership between the Commonwealth Government, State Government, Local Councils, SAPOL and other participating health services.

The aim of the program is to improve home security and personal safety, allow people to remain in their own homes and to provide a better quality of life.
